    The Refugees of Shangri La

    Directed by Doria Bramante, Markus Weinfurter 2014
    The Refugees of Shangri-La reveals the tragic plight of the 107,000 refugees from
    the most unlikely of places. The Kingdom of Bhutan, creators of Gross National
    Happiness, and revered by many as 'the last Shangri la' has created the largest
    number of refugees in relation to it population in history.
    Today, for the first time, we hear the stories of the refugees as they recount their
    happy lives in Bhutan, their painful eviction, the twenty long years of struggle, living
    life as a refugee in Nepal and, finally, their decision to brave a new course and seek
    a future in a place called America.
    The film follows a population from the remote corners of the world as they pack up
    for a journey that will scatter them across the sea into the buzz of a foreign civilization. But, even amidst their traumatic past, we bear witness to the immigrant’s tale as the Bhutanese take on each new trial with hope, determination, and an enduring smile.
    Today, America has resettled over 80,000 Bhutanese Refugees. Thousands more
    have moved to countries like Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Sweden, Norway, the
    Netherlands and so on...This is the story of our new neighbors, The Refugees of Shangri La
