After Hours Film Society Presents Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom
“A simple yet effective and beautifully shot film about the importance of education and the preservation of tradition and nature.”
–Rene Sanchez, Cine Sin Fronteras
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. A discussion follows the film.
