The Eagle Huntress. (G) Thirteen-year-old Aisholpan trains to become the first female in twelve generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle huntress. Viewers jaded by daily doses of digital dazzlement might not fully register the reality of the wonders they are witnessing. But that doesn’t, in the end, make The Eagle Huntress any less wonderful. –A.O. Scott, New York Times. BAFTA Awards: Best Documentary Nomination; additional 8 wins and 18 nominations.
