THE EAGLE HUNTRESS (U)
Wednesday, 17th May, 7:45pm
Fletton House, Fletton Way, PE8 4JA
Director: Otto Bell
Runtime: 1hr 27min
‘Stunning’, ‘Inspiring’, ‘Enchanting’, ‘Thrilling’... just some of the epithets used to characterise The Eagle Huntress. And yes, it is a documentary! Set in the bare and forbidding Mongolian mountains, the film follows a 13-year-old girl’s quest to become the first female eagle hunter in twelve generations of her Kazakh family. Aisholpan fights against tradition, but also to prove herself. It is a story that gives insight into a nomadic society that still has very little in material things and yet has a great sense of self. It is also a story of a golden eagle and its place in between nature and humanity.
‘...one of the most magical stretches of nonfiction filmmaking in recent years.’ Entertainment Weekly

Director: Mira Nair
Runtime: 2hr 4min
Queen of Katwe is the colourful, true story of a 10-year-old girl selling corn on the streets of rural Uganda whose world changes rapidly when she is introduced to the game of chess. Life for Phiona Mutesi’s family is a constant struggle. When she meets Robert Katende, a soccer player turned missionary who teaches local children chess, she is captivated and immediately shows potential. Recognising her natural aptitude and the fighting spirit she has inherited from her mother, Katende begins to mentor Phiona, but her mother is reluctant to provide any encouragement, not wanting to see her daughter disappointed.
‘If you want to see film stardom look as easy as laughter, watch Lupita Nyong’o and David Oyelowo in Queen of Katwe. The twosome give Mira Nair’s rainbow-toned pick-me-up about a young Ugandan chess prodigy exactly the magnetic charge it needs to stick.’ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

‘Treadaway may be sympathetic and charming as the struggling musician, but this is Bob's show, all the way.’ Devan Coggan, Entertainment Weekly
