P.O.V.

Big Enough (#1802)

In this intimate portrait, Jan Krawitz revisits some of the subjects who appeared in her 1982 film, "Little People." Through a prism of "then and now," she contrasts the youth of these individuals affected with dwarfism with their lives 20 years later. From navigating everyday life to dating and marrying, they confront physical and emotional challenges with humor, grace and sometimes, frustration. "Big Enough" provides a unique perspective on a proud and active community that many people know only from cultural stereotypes. [56 minutes] Closed Captioning
