About Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom

Spend a couple of hours with the beautiful residents of the happiest country in the world with this rare film from the Kingdom of Bhutan.

A fish out of water story, it follows a city teacher who is posted to the world’s most remote school, where he must find a way to teach without electricity or a blackboard, but yes, there really is a Yak in the classroom! Unfolding against a breath-taking Himalayan backdrop, this Oscar nominated drama will captivate children and adults alike with its portrayal of little seen lifestyles (you’ll never think of Yak dung in the same way again!) and life affirming message.
