Oscar Nominated for Best International Feature Film

Oscar Nominated for Best International Feature Film

From Bhutan. A disillusioned schoolteacher is transferred to the most remote school in the world, cut off from modern life deep in the Himalayan glaciers.  In a classroom with no electricity or even a blackboard, he finds himself with only a yak and a song that echoes through the mountains.


Winner of multiple awards, including Best Film and Audience Awards at international film festivals in Innsbruck, Cairo, Palm Springs, and more; also major award-winner at Mountain Film Festivals and Youth Film Festivals.
