Lunana - A Yak in the Classroom (PG)

Director Pawo Choyning Dorji. Drama


When a daydreaming but discontented young teacher is posted to Lunana, a remote village high in the Himalayan mountains, he is disheartened to find a simple yak herding community lacking basic amenities such as electricity or even a blackboard in its school classroom. But the enthusiasm of his young students and the unassuming warmth of the village folk buoy his spirits and he must decide whether to return to the city before the gruelling winter sets in or remain in this strange and captivating land.

Starring Sherab Dorji, Ugyen Norbu Lhendup, Kelden Lhamo Gurung


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A wonderfully gentle story set in a beautifully scenic surroundings. Just enchanting, I thought.

Very good and was well-received judging by comments by the audience, but they may have been persuaded to come by the fish&chips supper. The only negative comment was that the subtitles, which were sometimes unclear against the background, were not on the screen for long enough to read. I suggested that people should learn Bhutanese!

A great film with beautiful filming and a touching story line. Thoroughly recommended
