10:30 AM German Film: At Eye Level (Auf Augenh÷he) Michael, an 11 year old orphan, lives in a children's home and has to fight each day to win the respect of the other children. One day, he finds out who his real father is and writes him a letter. His father, Tom, happens to be a person of short stature, who is even shorter than Michael. He wants to accept the challenge of fatherhood, even though he knew nothing about Michael until now. For Michael, Tom's handicap is a disaster, as he feels that it is opposite of the manliness and strength he envisioned his father to have. When the other children finds out, Michael's life becomes a disaster and he runs away from the children's home. With no other place to go, he moves in with Tom. Tom is new to fatherhood but tries his best, while Michael tries to hide his embarrassment from his classmates. This forces Tom to confront his handicap head on. As time passes, they discover that they have more in common than other sons and fathers, and form an unlikely bond.

This film is presented by the German Currents Film Festival.
