Oscar-nominated for Best International Feature. After a series of thefts occur at a German middle school, new teacher Carla Novak feels pressure coming from all sides. As investigations heat up, Carla’s facade of cool classroom rapport deteriorates, and students, parents, and staff grow tense. Can Carla maintain her diplomatic personality as she navigates the choppy waters of academia, or will she fail the test? (dir.İlker Çatak, Germany, 2023, 98m)

“Taking on the uneasy complexity of a progressive modern society, and the friction produced when pluralism and an insistence on order and obedience collide, is a bold move, and The Teachers’ Lounge pulls it off with a sense of tension that makes the whole thing play like a thriller.” –The New York Times
