Director Farah Nabulsi, born and raised in England, chose to make her debut film in Palestine, where she has her roots. After visiting occupied areas, she became aware of the systematic discrimination against Palestinians. She decided to create a feature film that sheds light on the conflict through the eyes of the people living there. The film follows various storylines and weaves a narrative that is as engaging as it is complex.

The Teacher received critical acclaim when it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September. Since then, the film has unfortunately gained increased relevance due to the war in Gaza. The Teacher is a meaningful film that, through multiple parallel stories, illustrates how cycles of violence can all too easily emerge in tense conflicts.
