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.
