LUNANA: A YAK IN THE CLASSROOM
OPENING NIGHT PRESENTATION | BAY AREA PREMIERE
ZOOM Q&A WITH DIRECTOR PAWO CHOYNING DORJI
THURSDAY, DEC. 9 • 7:30
A citified Bhutanese school teacher is sent to a very rural village to complete his obligatory public service before he can leave for a life in Australia. This is an instant classic, a wonderful neo-realist adventure. Not quite a road movie (more of a trail movie…), and not just a fish-out-of-water story, it’s a marvelous blend of serious and whimsical, with the special sauce of Bhutan’s astounding landscapes. Beautifully shot, with wonderful music, and a great cast of nonprofessionals. World premiere at the BFI London Film Festival; winner of the Audience Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. In Dzongka with English subtitles. Director: Pawo Choyning Dorji (Bhutan 2019) 110 mi
