Film society set for final screening of the season in Welwyn Garden City
Welwyn Garden City Film Society's final show of its 72nd season takes place in town next week.
For its last evening of the season, the society is showing Otto Bell’s beautiful, cinematically innovative documentary The Eagle Huntress at the Garden City Cinema on Sunday, June 17.
The film follows the lives of Mongolian nomads of the Altai Mountains, who have hunted with golden eagles for thousands of years.
The movie focuses on 13-year-old Aisholpan as her father trains her to become the first female eagle huntress in Mongolia – a job that has always been passed down from father to son over the centuries.
Set against the breathtaking expanse of the Mongolian steppe, this features some awe-inspiring cinematography.
Welwyn Garden City Film Society shows normally start on Sundays at 7.30pm, but as The Eagle Huntress will follow the AGM, it will start in Screen 3 at 8.20pm.
A guest ticket costs just £6. Buy them at the show or in advance from the CW Entertainment box office at www.cwentertainment.co.uk
At the screening you can join the film society for next season, which starts on September 30.
