199 Kleine Helden – The Project


The way to school is the strongest metaphor
for the road to education.

The way to school is the strongest metaphor for the road to education. In the single episodes, Sigrid Klausmann walks along with the children on their adventurous ways to school. The focus of attention are the children themselves and their wishes, fears and plans for their future. Their view on the world is where the main focus is laid on. The films are distributed worldwide by Weltvertrieb NEW DOCS in commercial and public broadcasting. They are shown as short film sequences as well as in 25 and 50 minute formats, and ARTHAUS cinemas in Stuttgart are presenting them in their preview programs. Plans for a second step are the production of a cinema format, for which the most beautiful and strongest stories will be combined and, in so doing, told anew. Recent films such as „Alphabet“ give proof of a whole society’s concern for the topic of education, in all social classes alike, and from different points of view. The topic is being talked about everywhere. „199 little heroes“ is our contribution to the debate.
