A Night Of German Drama Featuring ‘The Teachers’ Lounge’

About the film: Commencing her first job at a high school, Carla Nowak, a dedicated sports and maths teacher, stands out among the new staff because of her idealism. When a series of thefts occur at the school and one of her students is suspected, Carla decides to investigate to get to the bottom of the matter. Although she tries to mediate between outraged parents, opinionated colleagues and aggressive students, she is relentlessly confronted with the structures of the school system. Yet the more she tries to do everything right, the closer the young teacher, and others, come to breaking point. The Teachers’ Lounge is a transfixing study in power relations and critical commentary on our debate culture, truth and justice.

Stay tuned for the Mackay International Film Festival now just two weeks away and get ready for the pre-festival film at Pinnacle.
