Synopsis

When Bachir Lazhar begins a teaching job at a school in French-Canadian Montreal, his first challenge is to help the children cope with the trauma of their previous teacher's suicide, which occurred in the classroom. He announces himself cheerfully, telling his pupils his name means "Bearer of good news". With warmth and compassion, he begins to win them over, but must face the prejudices and suspicion of colleagues and parents, as well as repressed sadness from his own past in Algeria. This poignant and hopeful classroom drama, which has proved an audience favourite, sensitively deals with important issues in regard to overcoming trauma and community support networks.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
