GERMAN CLASS takes us back to school. Over the cour­se of six mon­ths the film clo­se­ly fol­lows class tea­cher Ute Vec­chio as she pre­pa­res child­ren who have just arri­ved from other coun­tries for the Ger­man school sys­tem. Small suc­ces­ses, lar­ge set-backs, school pranks and the loo­m­ing thre­at of depor­ta­ti­on – the chal­len­ges the child­ren face are just as diver­se as the coun­tries and cul­tures they ori­gi­na­te from.The ambi­tious Pran­ve­ra, who even beats the boys in arm wrest­les, has to suf­fer the depor­ta­ti­on of her best friend. Fer­di, who dreams of working as a car mecha­nic, only has four mon­ths left to catch up on four years’ worth of school­work. And class clown Kuj­tim has alrea­dy mana­ged to learn four lan­guages in his event­ful life­time, but can­not wri­te any of them.

GERMAN CLASS is a tou­ch­ing por­trait of lear­ning, adap­ting and gro­wing in a new lan­guage and in a new socie­ty. A fresh look at an insti­tu­ti­on that we think we all know well – school.
