The Eagle Huntress (2016) – [framed] Documentary Film Series


Date & Time: 
Apr 13 2017 - 7:30pm - 9:30pm

As part of our [framed] documentary series, Next Stage
Arts presents “The Eagle Huntress” (2016)
— Sundance 2016, Shortlisted for Oscar
Best Documentary.

13-year-old girl Aishol-pan trains to become the first female in
12 generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter and rises to the
pinnacle of a tradition that has been handed down from father to son for
centuries. Many old Kazakh eagle hunters vehemently reject the idea of any
female taking part in their ancient tradition, but Aishol-pan’s father believes
otherwise. (1h 27m)

Presented by producer Stacey
Reiss.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A.

The films in the [framed] series have recently played on the
festival circuit around the world including Sundance and Tribeca, and all have
been recognized with festival honors. The eclectic lineup explores a wide range
of issues including gender, incarceration, beauty, otherness, greed, and the
role of family and tradition.

Curator Nancy Schafer worked for the iconic Tribeca Film
Festival for 11 years, where she was most recently the festival’s executive
director. Schafer and Next Stage co-founder Billy Straus met at the Camden
International Film Festival in 2015 where Schafer serves on the advisory board,
and the idea of programming a documentary series for Next Stage was born.
