The Eagle Huntress. Review
Films that showcase different cultures from around the world are sorely lacking in our filmmaking landscape. Good thing we have films like “The Eagle Huntress.” Director Otto Bell, in his impressive debut, is a natural of the lens. Bell captures some breathtaking images while harnessing the simplicity and magic of his subjects. At 87 minutes, it’s a tight, sharp piece that relaxes into its rhythm, inviting the audience to dance. Soulful and angelic, it’s one of the most uplifting and spiritually rousing documentaries of the year.
The Eagle Huntress was shortlisted for an Oscar this year along with Terra Mater's The Ivory Game.
