Oscar-nominated for Best International Feature, İlker Çatak’s (I Was, I Am, I Will Be) captivating drama depicts school as a microcosm of society.

After a series of thefts at her school, dedicated young teacher Carla’s (Leonie Benesch – The White Ribbon, Babylon Berlin) relaxed rapport with her pupils comes under pressure. A staff investigation leads to accusations and mistrust among outraged parents, opinionated colleagues, and angry students. Caught in the middle of complex dynamics, Carla tries to mediate – but the more she tries to help, the more desperate her position becomes.

A riveting, uncompromising study in power dynamics, The Teacher’s Lounge shows how an idealist may be painfully caught between clashing sides.
