Herr Bachmann und seine Klasse / Mr Bachmann and His Class

by Maria Speth Special Screenings

The history of the Hessian industrial town of Stadtallendorf has been marked by migration ever since the Nazi era. Today, it still shows in the diversity of class 6b at the Georg Büchner School, where children with different social, religious and linguistic backgrounds come together. However, through his unflinching empathy – and using music as a universal language – teacher Dieter Bachmann successfully strengthens both their sense of community and their sense of self. With a spectacular closeness to the children, the film portrays the complex everyday life in the classroom. Emotional and captivating at the same time.
