SYNOPSIS

A high school teacher throws himself from the classroom window before the terrified eyes of his students. Despite the tragedy, six of them remain oddly cool and unemotional. Pierre, the new substitute teacher, notices the hostile behaviour of this close-knit clique. Smart and precocious, the six teenagers seem to be preparing a mysterious plan after school. Pierre becomes obsessed with them and is quickly sucked into their sinister game. His life soon turns into a nightmare.

DIRECTOR

Sebastien Marnier

Sebastien Marnier studied applied arts and cinema studies at university but didn’t immediately start taking films, instead publishing three novels from 2011 to 2013 and co-writing an animated TV series based on his own graphic novel Salaire Net Et Monde. He has directed three short films, and his first feature Faultless (Irreprochable) was released in 2016. It earned Marina Fois a Cesar nomination in 2017. School’s Out is his second feature film and had its world premiere this year at the Venice Film Festival in the Sconfini section.
