From Goethe Institut:

You are invited to the film screening “At Eye Level”. The film screening is within the framework of the German Film Festival for Children & Young Audience.

Michi (Luis Vorbach), 11 years old, lives in a children’s home and has to fight every day to win the respect of the other kids. One day, he finds out who his father is and writes him a letter. But when he eventually meets his dad Tom, it’s a shock for both of them. Tom (Jordan Prentice) happens to be a dwarf and is even shorter than Michael. He didn’t know about his son, but he wants to accept the challenge of fatherhood. For Michael, Tom’s condition is a disaster, as it’s the opposite of the manliness and strength he envisioned his father to have. When the other kids find out, Michael’s life becomes hell and he runs away from the children’s home. With nowhere else to go, he moves in with Tom. Tom is new to this fatherhood thing but tries his best, while Michael tries to hide his embarrassment and shame from his new friends he meets at a local skating rink. This forces Tom, who had coped well with his “differentness” so far in his life, to confront his condition head on.

The author and directing duo of Evi Goldbrunner and Joachim Dollhopf has developed a moving story for the cinema. AT EYE LEVEL is not only entertaining, the film also conveys an important message: It is a plea for tolerance, openness and empathy for people who are different. The film was made possible by the initiative “Der Besondere Kinderfilm” (The Special Children’s Film) with which public broadcasters, sponsors, government and the film industry support children’s films that are based on original screenplays.
