Our movies have been via Zoom for over a year. Now, we can once again meet at the Oystercatcher Community Center. Bring your favorite beverage, a pillow for comfort, and join your friends for an entertaining afternoon. We know that some will still enjoy the Zoom movies, so we plan to alternate each month. You can always check our website for information, location, and to register.
August Movie – “The Eagle Huntress”
When: Tuesday, Aug. 10, 4-6 p.m.
Location: Oystercatcher Community Center
Cost: None for members; $5 donation for guests
Aisholpan, a 13-year-old girl, trains to become the first female in 12 generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter and rises to the pinnacle of a tradition that has been handed down from father to son for centuries. While there are many old Kazakh eagle hunters who vehemently reject the idea of any female taking part in their ancient tradition, Aisholpan’s father, Nurgaiv, believes that a girl can do anything a boy can, as long as she’s determined.
