Screenings of Slovenian film Class Enemy (Razredni sovražnik) in California
Synopsis: Robert, the new German teacher, is aloof, authoritarian and demanding. He lectures on Thomas Mann, and expects his pupils to rise when he enters the room. He might even be a Nazi, the dismayed teenagers speculate. When his student Sabina takes her own life shortly after being reprimanded by Robert, the teacher is considered to be the cause. Instantly, a vengeful youth rebellion stirs in the benches. In tones of chilly blue, director Rok Bicek captures the fierce power struggle between teacher and students in a nuanced and genuinely thought-provoking way.
