The Next Best Picture Podcast – Interview With “The Teachers’ Lounge” Director & Co-Writer İlker Çatak

The Teachers’ Lounge” premiered at the 2023 Berlin International Film Festival, receiving critical acclaim for its direction, writing, and lead performance from Leonie Benesch. It went on to play many other film festivals throughout the year, ultimately receiving Germany’s selection for Best International Feature Film at this year’s Academy Awards. Director and co-writer İlker Çatak was kind enough to speak with us following the film’s Oscar nomination for Best International Feature Film to discuss his experience making the film, what went into the film’s screenplay, how the film’s tension was influenced by “Uncut Gems” and more. Please be sure to check out the film, which is up for your consideration for Best International Feature Film. Thank you, and enjoy!
