Lessons of a Dream is based on the life of German football pioneer Konrad Koch. In the late 19th-century Koch was one of the first English teachers in the German Empire. He famously introduced his students to the new sport of football, completely unknown outside of England at the time. Koch’s liberal teaching methods would eventually upset his conservative colleagues, his student’s parents, and local dignitaries. The film marked director Sebastian Grobler’s debut on the big screen and features a first-rate cast including Daniel Brühl (Good Bye, Lenin!), Burghart Klaussner (The White Ribbon) and Thomas Thieme (The Lives of Others).
