Little Manila

Being a little person doesn’t mean you have to dream small

The midget community of Manila is composed by roughly one hundred people. Still the object of a widespread prejudice, most of them can’t find any other job than restaurant waiter or attraction in the red light district bars, where patrons are entertained with midget boxing matches, a tradition born right in the Philippines. But the sons and daughters of midgets are determined, however hard it may be, to make their way in other careers and to overcome the discrimination which confined their parents on the ring. And one of them has a dream: to build the world’s first entirely dwarf-size village.
