Enchanting, entertaining and gloriously filmed, Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom follows a daydreaming young teacher who discovers an unlikely path to contentment after being posted to a remote school, dizzyingly high up in the Himalayan mountain village of Lunana. Beautifully photographed in extraordinary mountain locations, this poetic and enchanting drama earned Bhutan the country's first ever Oscar nomination and gives a fascinating insight into a region largely uncharted on screen.

'An ideal balance of gentle humor and life-affirming drama.'
