Alice Springs Cinema Film Festival – “The Kindergarten Teacher”

October 21 @ 4:45 pm - 6:30 pm

Winner Sundance Festival Directing Award.


Forty years old, stuck in Staten Island and married to a sweet but oblivious husband with kids that largely ignore her, Lisa Spinelli spends her days teaching Kindergarten with growing numbness. Her one reprieve is a nighttime poetry class across the bay in Lower Manhattan. When she discovers that a five-year-old in her class may be a poetic prodigy, Lisa becomes fascinated–then obsessed, as she struggles to protect him from neglectful parents and a plagiarizing babysitter. She soon finds herself risking her career, family and freedom to nurture his artistic promise. 

This film is part of the 2018 Alice Springs Cinemas Film Festival 19th-21st October.
