Former CMCL Major Returns to IU Cinema to Screen Her Film

I'm hoping you can pass the word to the Communciations and Culture folks that Hannah Fidell is coming to IU Cinema this week to screen her film A Teacher and to participate in a Jorgensen Guest Filmmaker Lecture. Hannah was a CMCL major at IUB.

It would be so great to have a lively turnout of students, staff, and faculty (and the community at large) to welcome her back and celebrate with her.

Another IU alum (from Theatre & Drama) - Eliza Hittman - will be here as well with her film It Felt Like Love.

Part psychological thriller and part provocative character study, A Teacher explores the unraveling of a young high school teacher, Diana (Lindsay Burdge), after she begins an affair with one of her teenage students. What starts as a seemingly innocent fling becomes increasingly complex and dangerous as the beautiful and confident Diana gets fully consumed by her emotions, crossing boundaries and acting out in progressively startling ways. Lindsay Burdge delivers a deeply compelling and seamlessly naturalistic performance that brings us into the mind of an adult driven to taboo against her better judgment. (2K DCP presentation)
