A lyrical, exciting and tender portrait of a falcon hunt in the desert of Pakistan, with an international cast Qataris, Baloch, Lebanese, Egyptians.... and two American women. Rarely have Western women been invited to hunt with falcons in the Arab world.
The film is a love letter to the special relationship a falconer has with his falcon. Disarming Falcons illuminates the falconers' all-consuming love for his falcon, and its wily and fierce prey-- the Houbara. This film is a must-see for all bird lovers, naturalists, sports lovers, and those that wish for peace between cultures.
Wendy Johnson and Annie Nocenti made the short documentary The Baluch. Johnson has a master's in Languages and Literature of South Asia. Nocenti has made films in Haiti, wrote the feature Taking Chances, and writes Catwoman comics.
