Das Lehrerzimmer

İlker Çatak

Carla wants to do everything right in her first job at high school and is fully committed. Her idealism is quickly confronted with a major challenge: a series of unsolved thefts leads the young teacher into a conflict that makes her increasingly desperate. Was it the German-Turkish student from her class or can the culprit be found in the teacher’s room? 

With a sophisticated screenplay and excellent acting, İlker Çatak talks about everyday racism, classism and bullying at a school.
