As the country is braving through the second wave, many possibilities and plans have been wrapped in a bag and shoved in a rusting attic. Waking up to the heavenly view of the valleys, breeze flirting with your hair as you sip on the local tea sounds like a distant (and sinful) dream.

But while we fight this evil indoors, there's still a way to be transported to new lands, get a glimpse of different cultures and connect to the world which might feel faraway right now.

Open the door to the world with these movies from around the world that will take you places- right from your couch.
