Past Event

Czech cinema was a force to be reckoned with in the 1960s, when the counterculture spread throughout Europe and inspired some of the most delightfully anarchic comedy of its era. Today, the European Union continues to turn out plenty of social critique, as Jan Hrebejk's The Teacher demonstrates. Opening in 1983, the film follows a teacher in a suburban middle school who bullies her students and blackmails their parents. It sounds like one of the must-sees of the American Cinematheque's fourth annual Starring Europe: New Films From the EU 2017 series. A discussion with the director will follow the screening.
