Harrowing Slamdance Breakout “This Teacher,” From Acclaimed Director Mark Jackson Starring Hafsia Herzi Arrives This June

“This Teacher,” from multi-award-winning director Mark Jackson (“Without”, “War Story”, arrives on DVD and VOD on June 9. “This Teacher” follows a French Muslim woman (portrayed by Hafsia Herzi) as she travels to New York City from the rough neighborhoods outside of Paris to visit her childhood best friend.

But when their reunion turns disastrous, she escapes to a cabin upstate. However, she soon finds she is not alone, and her peaceful getaway devolves into a nightmare.

“Herzi commands attention” (Eye for Film), in this “an exceptionally written, slyly funny yet emotionally harrowing film” (Film Threat), selected as the Closing Night film at Slamdance, with official screenings at BendFilm Festival, BFI London, and LA Film Festival, where it received the U.S. Fiction Award.
