What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Eagle Huntress is a documentary about an extraordinary 13-year-old named Aisholpan Nurgai, who strives to become the first female eagle hunter in 12 generations of her nomadic Mongolian tribe's history. Her story will encourage girls to see that there doesn't have to be any limit to what they can accomplish -- and that with dedication, perseverance, and discipline, they can enter fields traditionally dominated by men. There's no strong language (though there are some subtitles to read), sex, or substance use, but tweens and up are the ideal audience. Little kids may have trouble with the frank depiction of hunting. With her father's guidance and her grandfather and mother's blessing, Aisholpan overcomes many obstacles to make her dreams come true. She also challenges stereotypes by being a fierce, courageous, focused hunter, as well as feminine (she loves bows and nail polish). This powerful, inspiring documentary, narrated and produced by Daisy Ridley, is a film that all children -- regardless of gender -- should see.
