Rated 100% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, THE MONK AND THE GUN captures the wonder and disruption as Bhutan becomes one of the world's youngest democracies. From award winning director Pawo Choyning Dorji (LUNANA: A YAK IN THE CLASSROOM), the film follows an American who travels to Bhutan and crosses paths with a young monk who wanders through the serene mountains, instructed by his teacher to make things right again. “Relaxed yet perceptive, The Monk And The Gun is a freewheeling convergence of modernity and tradition, the urban and the rural.” (Screen International).
