Proof of Vaccination Required
Ticket holders are required to provide proof of vaccination—to the maximum extent for which they are eligible—for entry into the Barbro Osher Theater.
Mr. Bachmann and His Class is an intimate documentary portraying the bond between a schoolteacher and his students. His unconventional methods clash with the complex social and cultural realities of the provincial German industrial town they live in, which has a complex history of both excluding and integrating foreigners. Aged between twelve and fourteen, his pupils come from twelve different nations; some have not quite mastered the German language. Bachmann “mounted his personal revolution for years. . . . Mr. Bachmann and His Class [bears] fond, admiring witness to the small acts of pedagogical heroism that happened there, every day” (Variety). Presented as part of the 26th Berlin & Beyond Film Festival.
