A teacher you will never forget, in a drama laced with dark humor, by Oscar-Nominated director Jan Hřebejk.

Effectively transposing 12 ANGRY MEN into the most intense PTA meeting of all time, Jan Hřebejk’s THE TEACHER is a sardonic, richly seriocomic morality play that uses a delicate touch to explore why communism never seems to work out in the long run.   Set in Czechoslovakia circa 1983 — when the country was just beginning to peek out from behind the Iron Curtain — and loosely inspired by true events, this crowd-pleasing standout leverages its hyper-specific setting to convey a universal story of fear and power.   It’s a lot more fun than it sounds.” – David Ehrlich, Indiewire

Though flecked with dark humor, the film is a chilling reminder of what people can get away with, and what can become normal, if one consents to an oppressive system.” – Leah Pickett, Chicago Reader

An intelligent and universally resonant crowd-pleaser.” – Alissa Simon, Variety

Language: Slovak (English subtitles)
