The Teachers’ Lounge | Movie Club Preview

A discounted Movie Club Preview!

Watch Trailer

Sit back and take in a Movie Club Preview of the Oscar-winning director Ilker Çatak’s scintillating drama, The Teachers’ Lounge, nominated for Best International Feature Film at this year’s Academy Awards.

European Shooting Star Leonie Benesch (Oscar Winning The White Ribbon, The Crown, Babylon Berlin) stars as a dedicated yet perfectionist teacher in this tense drama that sees the school as a microcosm of society.

Commencing her first job at a high school, Carla Nowak, a dedicated sports and maths teacher, stands out among the new staff because of her idealism.

When a series of thefts occur at the school and one of her students is suspected, Carla decides to investigate to get to the bottom of the matter. Although she tries to mediate between outraged parents, opinionated colleagues and aggressive students, she is relentlessly confronted with the structures of the school system. Yet the more she tries to do everything right, the closer the young teacher, and others, come to breaking point.

The fourth feature from acclaimed director Ilker Çatak, The Teachers’ Lounge is a transfixing study in power relations and critical commentary on our debate culture, truth and justice.
