In this visually evocative film Richard Butchins talks to a number of artists with dwarfism and explores a hidden chapter in the history of art, revealing how the depiction of people with dwarfism in painting, sculpture and photography speaks volumes about society’s shifting attitudes towards disability.

This is the story of dwarfism in art but it also says much about the social history of people with disability and how they were viewed, it brings important new voices into the debate, featuring the untold historical memoirs of court dwarfs, the rarely heard voices of artists with dwarfism and the fresh perspectives of academics with dwarfism today.
