Even Dwarfs Started Small

Auch Zwerge haben klein angefangen

Directed by Werner Herzog
West Germany, 1970
Comedy, Drama, Horror


In a police station a dwarf is seated on a chair. He is photographed and then interrogated about acts of violence he committed during a revolt. The story thus turns back in time, to when the dwarfs, detained in a correction facility, took advantage of the director’s absence to rebel.
