Even Dwarfs Started Small
Filmfest 2007

EVEN DWARFS STARTED SMALL may be the ultimate cult film. Some, like directors David Lynch and Harmony Korine, consider it a masterpiece. Others think it an obscenity. In a world inhabited solely by dwarfs, a revolt has occurred at a remote institution... the inmates engage in some minor vandalism and free-spirited shenanigans, exploring the bounds of their newly won liberation. But as the day goes on, an uneasy air of trepidation sets in and harmless fun turns more destructive and malicious... An uncompromising parable on oppression and rebellion. reel.com
