The talk will include the remarkable sory of Ashol-Pan, Mongolia's first female eagle hunter in more than a thousand years. Ashol-Pan's story has been covered by many news channels across the globe (including the BBC and National Geographic) and a film is currently in production about her life.

Fresh from another trip to Asia, Asher will be covering his latest documentary work with another secret photo project that will be revealed at this event.
