Bhutan 2019, 109 mins. Director Pawo Choyning Dorji. Starring Sherab Dorji, Ugyen Norbu Lhendup

A young teacher in Bhutan, Ugyen, wishing to become a singer in Australia, is sent to complete his training in a very remote village in the Himalayas, Bhutan. He treks reluctantly for days only to find a village of 56 people with no electricity or running water. This is a charming film, set in spectacular scenery. The local people have never seen a camera before. The eager and welcoming children turn the young man into an inspiring teacher who learns to love the culture and the community. A captivating and humorous film, with wonderful scenes of yaks.
