Hannah Fidell’s directorial debut, A Teacher, has been garnering buzz out of Sundance. The film follows a high school teacher Diana (Lindsay Burdge) who is involved with one of her students Eric (Will Brittain). The relationship begins merely as a fling but Diana becomes increasingly unraveled and the relationship becomes more and more complicated.
The film was just picked up by Oscilloscope Laboratories and David Laub and Dan Berger of O-Scope commented in a press release about the film.
A TEACHER is a remarkably assured debut, and demonstrates two immense new talents, one in front of and one behind the camera. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome the film into O-Scope’s ranks and present it to the world.
A Teacher will play South by Southwest next month. Check out the trailer below.
