Producer Benjamin Wiessner and his film production team spent months talking with teachers across the country and researching some of the biggest issues on their minds. They crafted a parent-teacher conference night gone wrong for a short film that has played at major film festivals around the world. The directors have won awards from Sundance and SxSw.
"We created this film so that it could help build more conversations on what we need to be doing next in the American education system," Ben Wiessner told Bored Teachers.
They recently shared the short film with Bored Teachers to present to our audience, and boy, are you in for one heck of a show! Taking you from belly laugh eruptions, to tears and heartbreak, this short film portrays the horrors a teacher faces in a classroom full of selfish, complaining parents. It truly depicts the struggle teachers deal with, and the lack of respect they receive, no matter how much care and effort they give.
So put down your red pen, grab your Diet Coke, or tea, and popcorn, and enjoy the award-winning Parent Teacher...
