In this intimate portrait, several dwarfs who appeared in Jan Krawitz and Thomas Ott’s 1982 film Little People welcome the camera into their lives once again. Through a prism of “then and now,” the characters in the film confront physical and emotional challenges with humor, grace, and sometimes, frustration.
What is it like to date or find a spouse? What about the decision to have children – with a 75% chance that their offspring will be a dwarf? And what does the future hold now that many genetic conditions, including dwarfism, can be diagnosed in utero? Big Enough provides a unique perspective on a proud and active community that many people know only from cultural stereotypes.
