Monk chasing Monkey by Aum Kunzang Choden
Rigzin, a young monk, lives a cloistered life with his master in the remote mountains of Bhutan. He knows nothing of the outside world, till one day his blissful isolation is invaded by a modern pop song. All peace and contentment shattered, Rigzin can find no rest till he satiates his new found curiosity.
With the help of his master, Rigzin sets off on a magical journey around the country following his monkey mind whenever it takes him. He finds himself thrust into a world far more confounding man than he could have ever imagined. By turns fiercely comical and tender, Monk Chasing Monkey is the story of modern Bhutan and a moving navigate unknowable complexities every day.
