The award-winning German dramatic comedy The Crocodiles sets a fast-paced, rough-and-tumble tone from its opening moments.

A boy named Kai, a newcomer to town who uses a wheelchair, wants to join the cool kids, who call themselves the Crocodiles. The Crocodiles aren’t sure if Kai will fit into their life of adventure, but before long he’s able to help them in their crime-busting and in learning about life and friendship. In German with English subtitles. (98 mins., 35mm)

The Zoom: Family Film Festival for 2010 was organized by Chris Stults, Wexner Center assistant curator of film/video, and Jean Pitman, educator for youth programs.

Please Note: The Crocodiles includes realistic depictions of Kai's challenges, among them his need for assistance in the bathroom. The age recommendation listed above is very general. If you would like to discuss the specifics of any film before viewing it with your child, please call Jean Pitman at (614) 292-4614.
