  • A teacher stands in front of a green chalk board

Oscar-nominated The Teachers’ Lounge is German writer-director İlker Çatak’s brilliantly observed drama. Playing out like a thriller, the film expertly explores the fault lines of contemporary society.

Carla Nowak, a dedicated teacher, starts working at a high school when one of her students is suspected of theft. Idealist Carla decides to take the matter into her own hands, while confronting the structures of the school system and the consequences of her own actions.
