During a recent seminar in Beijing, producers revealed that the new movie Being A Teacher boasts a remarkable distinction as possibly the education-themed film with the largest ensemble of real-life teachers guiding ideology and political education classes. The film showcases over 400 teachers in a pivotal scene, adding a unique layer of authenticity to the narrative.

Since its premiere on April 18, Being A Teacher has garnered a substantial box office revenue of 11 million yuan ($1.52 million), with screenings held across 318 universities nationwide, underscoring its widespread appeal and impact.

Centered around the protagonist Sun Heng, a troubled youth on a transformative odyssey toward becoming an exemplary educator specializing in Chinese ideological and political education, the film unfolds a tale of personal growth and mentorship. Sun's evolution is catalyzed by a group of influential teachers who reshape his worldview through their guidance.

Ming Zhenjiang, the honorary chairman of the China Film Producers Association, lauded the movie for authentically portraying the rebellious maturation of a lost youth, a narrative that resonates deeply with young audiences seeking inspiration and guidance.

Yin Hong, the vice-chairman of the China Film Association, praised the film for its compelling character development and its deft integration of societal issues like campus bullying into the storyline.
