Cinedigm has announced it will release the psychological thriller Teacher on digital, DVD, and VOD on August 13, 2019, following a limited theatrical engagement.
Written and directed by Adam Dick, the film stars David Dastmalchian (Ant-Man, upcoming Dune and The Suicide Squad) and Kevin Pollak (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” The Usual Suspects) and was produced by Matthew Helderman (Buffalo 8 and BondIt Media Capital) and Zachary Kamen. Teacher opens August 2 in Los Angeles at the Laemmle Glendale, with an additional one-night-only screening in Chicago at the Logan Theater on August 3 (Q&A with director and cast to follow).
Adam Dick’s narrative debut as a director, Teacher is an unflinching portrayal of trauma as a contagion passed between people and generations, all set within the prism of modern suburbia. The film follows the downward spiral of a high school English teacher (Dastmalchian) as he goes to disturbing lengths to protect his favorite students from bullies and challenge the power of a wealthy patron (Pollak) within the community.
