The kingdom of Bhutan


Snapshots from a series of short film I did about children playing around the world .


The tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, home to quaint Buddhist temples is set in an untouched landscape. But behind its beauty Bhutan is still mired by extreme poverty, chronic unemployment and economic stupor. Almost a quarter of the population is currently living below the poverty line and around half have never gone to school, making employment an inevitable problem in the country’s development progress. Yet the people of Bhutan are some of the most intelligent and gifted you can meet.
