CLASS ENEMY [Razredni sovražnik]
2013 Oscar® Selection, Slovenia

When an easygoing homeroom teacher goes on maternity leave, she is replaced by Robert, a no-nonsense German teacher with certain ideas about how students should behave. Things fall apart after a student commits suicide following an especially demeaning interaction with the authoritarian teacher, and the tight-knit senior class rebels against his humiliating methods and the “system.” Based on actual events that occurred in the high school of debut filmmaker Rok Biček, whose morally complex feature has been celebrated on the international film festival circuit. Official Selection, 2013 Venice Film Festival; 2014 Palm Springs, Seattle, Karlovy Vary Film Festivals.
