Muallim – The Teacher

Samadar is the only teacher in a small Tajikistani village. He teaches all his pupils with the same dedication, just like his father Nazar would teach him during the time of the Soviet Union. He also looks after his father, his father who is prepared for death, but wants to wait until his second son Yusuf returns from Moscow. Tajikistan’s most important director tenderly tells us a universal story of family life set against the backdrop of a communist past and an Islamic present.
