Virtual Screening and Discussion: Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom, May 12 at Pitt.


The University of Pittsburgh's Asian Studies Center will present Virtual Screening and Discussion: Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom, a discussion around a 2019 Bhutanese film, on May 12.
A young teacher in modern Bhutan 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 wants to quit and go home, but he begins to learn of the hardship in the lives of the beautiful children he teaches, and begins to be transformed through the amazing spiritual strength of the villagers.
Register here for a virtual screening of LUNANA: A YAK IN THE CLASSROOM (Pawo Choyning Dorji, 2019).
Event will be broadcast live digitally. Before the screening, a link will be sent to the email account provided below.
The event starts at 6:30 pm and is free and open to the public, though registration is required.
