Grimme Award nomination for Jonas larger than life
The film Jonas larger than life by Bernadette Hauke was awarded the Special Prize of the Children's Jury by the Federal Center for Civic Education within the framework of the Children's Media Prize 2016.
Jonas is short-lived from birth. With his twelve years he has just reached 1.20 meters. When Jonas is grown up, he will be at most 1.40 meters tall. No easy situation for the charming and lifeless boy. But nothing can bring Jonas down. In many everyday situations he has developed his own strategies. With his "pinguin technique" he can not fall down the stairs. In the meantime, he is no longer annoyed when other people stare at him. The twelve-year-old has not been intimidated for a long time.
