Bhutan’s first ever Oscar-nominated film is about a young man who is neglectful of his duties as a trainee teacher as he dreams of relocating to Australia and becoming a singer.  As part of the disciplinary action taken by his superiors, he is sent to complete his teacher training in the most remote school in the world, a glacial Himalayan village called Lunana, without electricity, wi-fi, textbooks or even a blackboard.

Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom is a simple story with a big heart and a reminder of film’s ability to communicate universal truths across international borders.  It was shot using solar batteries on location in the spectacular scenery of the Himalayan glaciers at an average altitude of 5,000m.
