2017 Picture this...film festival
The film At eye level (Germany),
Film description: Michi lives in a children's home, every day fighting to win the respect of the other kids, until the day he finds his father Tom, who happens to be a dwarf, shorter than Michi is, the opposite of his idea of manliness and strength. When the other children find out, Michi's life becomes hell and he flees. With nowhere to go, he moves in with Tom, who is new to this fatherhood thing. This forces Tom, who has coped well up until now, to confront his dwarfism head on.
