The Teacher
From Oscar-nominated director/ writer Jan Hrebejk, ‘The Teacher’ is a wildly entertaining black comedy, sprinkled with humor and irony inspired by the true story of a Communist-era school teacher. Set in Bratislava in years 1983–1984, it examines the abuse of power at a high school. The film tells the story of Mrs. Drazdechova, a terrifying teacher who heads the local Communist party and uses her pupils to manipulate their parents for her own personal benefit.

‘The Teacher’ describes a secret meeting between the school’s the head teacher and the parents of students taught by the unscrupulous educator where the divide between the teacher’s supporters and detractors are brought into focus.

Each autumn, middle-aged Comrade Drazdechova greets her new class by asking them to introduce themselves and share what their parents do for a living. She manipulates her students and their parents to provide her with favors, such as a free perm at a hairdresser and repairs to a lamp, in exchange for information regarding student assessment that ensures the compliant student’s academic success.

What ensues is that a divide is created between the parents who refuse to be manipulated and other parents who have improved their children’s grades through their unquestioning compliance with Mrs. Dradechova’s demands.
