THE TEACHER

Set in 1983 during the height of Communist rule, THE TEACHER follows the students and families of a suburban school in Bratislava whose lives are upturned by the arrival of a new instructor. At first Miss Drazdechova seems like a kindly and attentive instructor - until she starts making unusually harsh demands of her pupils. The teacher's high connections within the Communist Party makes everyone feel threatened. The student's parents have no choice but to make a decision: will they dare to go against Miss Drazdechova and stand up for what they believe in at any risk, or will they remain silent?

Running Time: 102 Minutes. Not Rated.

Please Note: THE TEACHER is in Slovak with English Subtitles
