The ability of cinema to discover remote corners of our planet is evident in ‘Lunana, a yak at school’, a production that takes us to Bhutan, a distant kingdom of the Himalayas, which achieved its first Oscar nomination with this simple and compelling story which is already, with the permission of ‘La copa’ (Khyentse Norbu, 1999), the most important title to come out of the country thanks to a small adventure that serves, at the same time, as a vindication of the charms of a territory in the heights.
First feature by Pawo Choyning Dorji, author of the script, the film introduces us to a teacher who, overwhelmed by his narrow borders, wants to see the world and become a singer. To lower his feet to the ground, his superiors decide that it is time for him to take charge of the education of the students of one of the most remote schools on the planet, a place without electricity or teaching material of any kind with which, like the viewer, you will end up in love with the unspeakable landscapes and human warmth.

Though poor, the villagers warmly welcome his new teacher, but he is faced with the daunting task of teaching the village children without any materials.
