Watch this hidden gem and tell everyone you can about it

I spent nearly twelve years searching for this title and the wait was worth every day.

The unicycle action is first rate and worthy of any action-sports documentary. Though unicycles are the anchor of this film, Into the Thunder Dragon makes Bhutan the star. Kris and Nathan are certainly likable characters, but Bhutan stands out even stronger. Viewers get an in depth view of multiple aspects of such an esoteric culture, be they: fashion, geography, cuisine, economics, archery, roads, music, politics, mythology,and youth. The cinematography is always exquisite and badly makes one want to take a journey into the Himalayas. Both Kris and Nathan (as well as the Bhutanese folks) make unicycles look incredibly joyful, and one wants to walk away giving this precarious sport a shot.

Thank you Vancouver Island Regional Library for loaning me a DVD copy of Into the Thunder Dragon. The film is on youtube now (will hopefully stay there). I hope you find a copy quickly, enjoy it, and spread the word.
