Falconry: A History of Cultural Traditions

Development of a 90-minute film exploring the cultural and historical significance of falconry in cultures around the world.

Empathic. Pangaeaic. Savage. Conservation. Tradition. Talons. A global odyssey about falconers, their magnificent hunting birds and their relationships with the natural, cultural and geopolitical landscape. "Untitled Falconry Film" is a 90-minute feature documentary film being produced and directed by award winning filmmakers Elisabeth Haviland James, Revere La Noue and Robert Nixon. Our goal - create a documentary experience that connects the past to the present and weaves together distant lands and cultures though a character-driven exploration of the art of falconry. Our promise - filmmaking is all about storytelling. We are going to elevate you from the daily din and bring you on an escape, introducing you to places around the globe you may otherwise never see, music you would never hear and people you would never meet. You will finally get to know the birds that have darted in and out of your imagination since you were a child.
