Directed by Maren Ade | 2005

With Eva Loebau, Daniela Holtz, Jan Neumann, Ilona Schulz, Robert Schupp

“Tapping in to primal fears of professional ineptitude and social rejection with an almost sadistic meticulousness, The Forest for the Trees is a precisely modulated first film.”
—Variety

In this Sundance Special Jury Prize winner, a young idealistic teacher from the country starts her first job at a high school in the city. Eager to make a good impression on those around her, she instead finds herself regularly humiliated by her students and unable to forge a connection with her peers and colleagues. This extraordinary debut led Cinema Scope to name Ade (Everyone Else) among the 50 best filmmakers under 50.
