Former Buddhist monk-turned-filmmaker, Greg Sneddon will present his powerful debut feature film, Arrows Of The Thunder Dragon at special event screenings in cinemas around Australia from April 29 through to May 7. Filmed entirely on location in the magnificent Himalaya mountains, the actors are made up of local highland village people. Arrows Of The Thunder Dragon pays homage to the Bhutanese Olympic Archery Team and was inspired by the lives of local Olympic women’s archery heroes, Sherab Zam and Tshering Chhoden. Greg Sneddon will be doing Q&As at these screenings. He will be accompanied by the star of the film Bhutanese actress Tshering Zangmo.
