The Teacher

The Teacher Shows That Communism's Impact Still Resonates

The Teacher is a feature film set during the country’s last years of communism. Created nearly three decades after the Velvet Revolution, which would reinstitute a democratic government and eventually split the country into the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the film is an utter purge against its former ideology. Its mere existence shows that communism’s impact still resonates among those who lived through the anxious and paranoid period.
