Inlet Theatre and Galleria

Event Details:

Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom - A young teacher in modern Bhutan, Ugyen, shirks his duties while planning to go to Australia to become a singer. As a reprimand, his superiors send him to the most remote school in the world, a glacial Himalayan village called Lunana, to complete his service. He finds himself exiled from his Westernized comforts – he finds no electricity, no textbooks, not even a blackboard. Though poor, the villagers extend a warm welcome to their new teacher, but he faces the daunting task of teaching the village children without any supplies. He wants to quit and go home, but he begins to be transformed through the amazing spiritual strength of the villagers. 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.
