Oscilloscope Acquires Sundance Pic ‘A Teacher’

BREAKING: Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired North American rights to Hannah Fidell’s feature directorial debut A Teacher, which premiered last month at Sundance and heads to Austin next for SXSW. The distributor plans a theatrical, video-on-demand and digital release later this year. The film stars Lindsay Burdge as an unraveling young high school teacher who starts an affair with one of her teenage students, played by Will Brittain. What starts as a seemingly innocent fling becomes increasingly complex—and dangerous as she begins to melt down.

Said O-Scope’s David Laub and Dan Berger: “A Teacher is a remarkably assured debut, and demonstrates two immense new talents, one in front of and one behind the camera. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome the film into O-Scope’s ranks and present it to the world.”

Kim Sherman and Fidell produced the film and ICM Partners made the deal.
