Watch Trailer

"Donji’s screenplay finds an ideal balance of gentle humor and life-affirming drama."

— Richard Kuipers, Variety

"'Lunana' demonstrates, as few films ever have, how inspired schooling can break through even the most abject obstacles."

— Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor

"Opening the doors to a land and people most Westerners know little about, the director crafts a crowd-pleaser in stunning, mostly unseen locations."

— Carlos Aguilar, Los Angeles Times

"The film invites us to imagine interior lives, a narrowing of the 'pursuit of happiness' to tasks at hand, modest goals, music, food and love. As our pandemic waxes and wanes, 'Lunana' becomes one of the great cinematic escapes of recent years."

— Roger Moore, Movie Nation
