Reviews:
"With a patient gaze grounded in respect and adoration for his subject, director Otto Bell delicately observes the rousing tale of 13-year-old Aisholpan, a young girl who bucks the ancient, male-dominated tradition of eagle hunting in Mongolia." -- Grade: B - 10/27/2016 Entertainment Weekly


"THE EAGLE HUNTRESS isn’t critical. It wants to make your heart swell, and it does a fine job of it." -- Grade: B - 11/01/2016 A.V. Club


3 stars out of 4 -- "Bravo to veteran nature cinematographer Simon Niblett for devising ways to safely shoot such spectacular action -- from a self-made drone and a crane to an “eagle cam" that employs a dog’s harness -- in such risky environs." - 11/02/2016 RogerEbert.com


"As unlikely as it is enchanting, THE EAGLE HUNTRESS tells its documentary story with such sureness that falling under its sway is all but inevitable." - 11/01/2016 Los Angeles Times


3 stars out of 4 -- "[F]rom the moment we see Aisholpan climb down a steep slope on the snow-covered Altai Mountains to capture an eaglet for training, we're hooked." - 11/02/2016 Rolling Stone


"[T]hrilling....The story is a simple and appealing fable of indomitability and father-daughter companionship." - 11/01/2016 New York Times


"[I]t offers inspiration...taking the audience on a beautiful, thrilling journey to a part of the world that isstill largely inaccessible. And it introduces them to a young woman who gives bravery a bracing, unforgettable face." - 11/10/2016 Washington Post


"This is a very nicely filmed piece of work. Aisholpan is very personable, and there are some eagle-vs-prey scenes that could go into PLANET EARTH II." - 12/15/2016 The Guardian
