Tshering Choden is Bhutan’s first female Olympic archery player, a role model for many Bhutanese young girls.

Holger Riedel, Compass film, flew to Bhutan in 2004 to  follow Tshering Choden while she was preparing for the Olympic games in Athens in 2004. Holger produced the documentary Bhutan Bogenschutz for Olympia (Bhutan’s first female archery player). ARTE screened the documentary in Germany.

The full documentary about Tshering Choden – ‘The archers of Bhutan’  – is now available on you tube.

Bhutan+partners assisted in the line production of the documentary and supported the company to produce an English version of the film, thus making it accessible for the English speaking public: bhutan’s first female Olympic archery player
