Netherlands, 2016, 113 min

KIET-TRAILER_NL_STmix from Peter Lataster on Vimeo.

Kiet Engels is the kind of teacher you’d wish for every schoolchild. She is strict but never harsh. She is loving but never soft. Her patience is endless. Miss Kiet’s pupils have only just arrived in the Netherlands. Many of them are refugees. Everything is new for them and confusing. Some are quarrelsome and stubborn. Miss Kiet’s firm but loving hand brings peacefulness and awakens their interest. She not only teaches the children to read and write Dutch, she also helps them to learn to solve problems together and to respect one another. Gradually the children gain skills and confidence.
