Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom (PG)

Part of Oscar Week

Lunana still

Academy Award nominee for Best International Feature

A young teacher in modern Bhutan, Ugyen, plans on shirking his duties to go to Australia and pursue his dream to become a singer. As a reprimand, his superiors send him to the most remote school in the world, in a village called Lunana, to complete his contract. 

Exiled from Western comforts, after an arduous 8 day trek just to get there, he arrives to a school with no electricity and no supplies - but a room of students filled with love and eager to learn.
