Little People Big Dreams

.
Mak Ck 2014

A millionaire wanted to create a utopia for little people in China. A land where they could live and work among themselves, away from the discrimination of mainstream society. And so the ‘Dwarves Empire’ was born. This is an unlikely theme park where dozens of little people live and perform for anyone who pays a US$16 entrance fee.
This observational documentary chronicles the journeys of a few employees at a pivotal point in their lives. Connected by a will to pursue their dreams, these little people take their chances in an uncertain world. ‘Little People Big Dreams’ explores the cost of prejudice and the shades of modern-day morality.

Press

  • Vanity Fair
    "A piece of art."
  • "There is a long history of entertainment objectifying people of short stature because of their appearance. Because of this, entertainment will always be a difficult issue within the dwarfism community. The beauty of Little People Big Dreams is that it shines a light on the dwarf theme park in China, and it lets the dwarf performers tell their own story, and it allows viewers to reach their own conclusion about the theme park."
    Gary Arnold, President of Little People of America
  • "A touching film that in virtue of its sensitivity is a rebellion against a world where such a place actually exists."
