LUNANA: A YAK IN THE CLASSROOM (PG)

A young teacher in Bhutan dreams of moving to Australia to be a singer. Instead, he finds himself in the world’s most remote school in a village accessible only by horse and foot with no electricity, no textbooks, not even a blackboard. There he learns more from the children than he can ever teach them and is transformed through the amazing spiritual strength of the villagers. 

Nominated for an Oscar in the Best International Feature category, Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom was shot on location in the Himalayas, relying on solar-powered batteries and enlisting local villagers to take on supporting roles. One of the only films made in the extraordinary Kingdom of Bhutan, this surprising and life affirming drama is imbued with low-key humour. This simple story with a big heart reminds us how cinema can connect us to what, ultimately, matters most in life.
