The Eagle Hunter’s Son
Friday, April 27, 6:00 pm
The Eagle Hunter’s Son is the story of twelve-year-old Barzabai who dreams of leaving his native Mongolian province for the city. When his older brother goes to the city, Barzabai chafes under his father’s strictness. He is frustrated by his father’s lack of confidence in his abilities with the eagle that is his father’s constant companion. He feels incompetent at the gathering of the eagle hunters and their sons. Finally Barzabai leaves to go to the city to find his brother. Fortunately, he is followed by his father’s prize eagle.
In the vein of international hits such as The Weeping Camel, The Eagle Hunter’s Son conveys poetry, rough beauty and genuine wisdom that appeals to children and adults in the best sense of substantial, edifying family entertainment. Intimate yet powerful, this superbly well-crafted feature by Renè Bo Hansen is a thrilling and emotional story about redemption, reconciliation and resolution, shot in the sumptuous landscapes of Mongolia.
Note to Parents/Teachers: The Eagle Hunter’s Son coming-of-age story about a teen boy’s journey away from home and his coming to a greater understanding of his father and his culture. There is some coarse language and situations that may be mildly upsetting to the most sensitive viewers. There is a happy resolution to the story. For ages 10+ In German and Mongolian with English subtitles.
Kidflix Global Event Films
Kidflix Global imports and distributes award winning family films throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico. These films are accessible through our website, Facebook page and some are brought to the public through television and live events and festivals.
Having discovered that there are many exceptional foreign films for children that are fun family entertainment for our audiences here, we created our film rental club, www.kidflixglobal.com as a portal to a broader vision of the world. We wanted to offer an alternative to the standard American film fare, and journey deeper into our own land, as well as other lands, where kids can experience in a visceral way how their peers around the world live, what they care about and how they feel. How do they relate to their family, to their loves? What do they do for fun?
We focus on films with good stories, courageous and resourceful characters, positive values and hopeful messages. We believe that these stories can bring children and their families to a greater understanding of themselves and each other and inspire a flourishing global community.
We are currently working on the expansion of our library of 13 films and we are always eager to see new work and will review films submitted.
