The Guardian shows us the abuse and discrimination that people with dwarfism face every day in this emotional documentary.
In it, we follow Cara Reedy as she recounts the issues she’s faced with her condition and meets with other people with dwarfism to hear their stories. She looks back at the history of dwarfs in entertainment and how they have been the subject of ridicule for decades. She meets the modern dwarf entertainers of today who perform “micro-wrestling” events. They argue that it offers them a way to earn a significant money in an economy that it’s built for people of their stature.
She also meets a comedian and actress who uses her platform to show people that dwarfs are the same as everyone else. It’s an interesting doc that shines a light on the overlooked issues that dwarfs face. Racism and sexism have lessend and offensive attitudes to people with disabilities have all improved over the last 50 years, but as this doc shows, things haven’t really improved all that much for people with dwarfism in that same time span.
