The Monk and the Gun / Butan, Taiwan, France & US/ 2023 / Dir: Pawo Choyning Dorji / 107 Mins/ Current Rotten Tomatoes Score: 100%
The Monk And The Gun captures the wonder and disruption as Bhutan becomes one of the world’s youngest democracies. Known throughout the world for its extraordinary beauty and its emphasis on Gross National Happiness, the remote Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan was the last nation to connect to the internet and television. And if that weren’t enough change, the King announced shortly afterwards that he would cede his power to the people via their vote and a new form of government: Democracy.
“This Bhutanese film is unassumingly profound, and hilariously endearing.” - Film Companion
