After traveling the world alongside migrating birds and diving into oceans in acclaimed nature documentaries, Winged Migrations and Oceans, Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud return to the lush forests that emerged across Europe following the last Ice Age. Winter had gone on for 80,000 years when the frost suddenly retreated and the landscape metamorphosized. The cycle of seasons was established and beasts occupied their new kingdom. With its exceptional footage of animals in the wild, this awe-inspiring and thought-provoking film depicts the long-shared history that binds humankind with the natural world.

This stunning documentary follows Aisholpan, a 13-year-old Mongolian girl, as she trains to become the first female in twelve generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter. Despite objections from older eagle hunters, she rises to the pinnacle of a ritual that has been handed down from father to son for centuries. This intimate look at a young girl’s determined quest to rise above a rigidly male tradition has earned critical acclaim around the world. Boasting breathtaking cinematography of the Mongolian steppe, this film is not to be missed. Narrated by Daisy Ridley.
