Event details

Bhutanese film that tells the story of Ugyen, a young teacher in Bhutan who evades 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 Himalayan glacial village called Lunana. There, he finds himself without electricity or heating, in a school without windows or slates, so he faces the overwhelming task of teaching the children of the town without any types of resources.
