Co-presented with Czech That Film

2017, 102 min, Czech Republic, Dir: Jan Hřebejk

The director of the Oscar-nominated DIVIDED WE FALL returns with a refreshing look at corruption and power in a 1980s Bratislava middle school. Inspired by real-life events in Hřebejk’s life, the film follows a charismatic but cunning teacher as she turns the lives of her students and their parents into chaos. “Intelligent and universally resonant crowd-pleaser.” - Alissa Simon, Variety.

Feature in Slovak with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
