Eagle Huntress

Saturday night’s screening at Buckingham’s independent cinema The Film Place is a hidden gem.

The Eagle Huntress is a documentary that follows a 13-year-old Mongolian girl as she and her golden eagle train to make her the first female in 12 generations of her family to become an eagle hunter, in a tradition that has been handed down from father to son for centuries within a society which finds it difficult to accept a daughter in the role.

The Eagle Huntress is being screened at 6.30pm on Saturday.

At 7.30pm on Friday, The Film Place is showing the drama Deepwater Horizon.

In 2010 the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig explodes in the Gulf of Mexico, igniting a massive fireball that kills 11 crew members.

The survivors fight the stifling heat and flames and, banding together, they use their wits to make it out alive amid the chaos of a fire that cannot be put out.
