It didn't win, but "A Yak in the Classroom" made history earlier this year when it became Bhutan's first-ever nomination in the Best International Feature Film category at the 94th Academy Awards. The film was one of five entries in the category.

According to Namrata Joshi, writing on Al Jazeera: "The 109-minute Bhutanese film is about young Ugyen, who has been sent off by the authorities to teach children at Lunana, one of the remotest high-altitude schools in the world. An arduous eight-day trek later, he finds himself stationed in a place with inclement weather and a lack of electricity and other basic amenities."

Below is the official trailer for the film if you haven't already seen it.
