Event Details

Falconer Shawn Hayes leads a life of devotion—to both his falcons and to the mountains and prairies beneath their wings. For Shawn, the ancient practice of falconry is more than a deep partnership with raptors: it’s become his life’s work.

Through his skill and finesse with these birds of prey he’s carved a space for himself in a culture where people of colour haven’t always been welcome. Shawn’s role as an American falconry ambassador has taken him to the far reaches of the globe, through strongholds of tradition and conservation. This film is about more than what humans can train birds to do—it’s about what those birds can teach us about living in partnership with wild creatures and wild places.
