The Teacher ARAB

In 'The Teacher', Farah Nabulsi's compelling feature debut, the lives of a Palestinian schoolteacher and an American couple come together in a story about loss, resistance and justice. Basem El-Saleh (played by Saleh Bakri), a grieving teacher, finds new purpose in helping his students, Adam and Yacoub, survive the demolition of their house. His bond with a British social worker (played by Imogen Poots) deepens as they share their traumatic pasts. Meanwhile, an American diplomat and his wife are tasked with negotiating the release of their kidnapped son, which escalates into a tense standoff. As the search intensifies, Adam's anger and Basem's commitment to the resistance threaten to escalate the situation beyond control. Set against the backdrop of occupied territory, 'The Teacher' explores the personal costs of political conflict, anchored by Bakri's powerful performance and inspired by true events.
