Lunana, A Yak in the Classroom

ISMU Big Zebra Prize Teaching Jury

Lunana: a Yak in the Classroom by Pawo Choyning Dorji

Lunana is a film that delights us for the story it tells of the small, remote and uncontaminated world in the Himalayas. For education without books, exercise books or a blackboard, but with its profound and deeply-rooted value reflected in the faces of the children and of the whole community, in a school that becomes life and body, joy and movement. It is a film that also shows us how the encounter with the unexpected, the unwanted and what is different, can become a journey of getting to know other humanities and above all the discovery of the self.

The prize consists in the acquisition of the film rights for the educational and non-theatrical distribution of the film in Italy.
It is awarded to the best feature film with a pedagogical and intercultural value by a Teachers’ Jury composed of 21 teachers from different schools in Milan who participated in a training course together with the Mentor Teachers and watched the 4 feature films in competition.
The film will be included in the COEmedia Distribuzione Cinema Catalogue, with films available for rental and educational reviews managed by the COE Foundation.
