BBC4 will broadcast a documentary which features Strong and Mighty Max on the 20th August 9-10pm
Strong and Mighty Max will feature as part of the BBC4 documentary exploring the history of people with dwarfism through the arts.
In this visually evocative film, Richard Butchins will explore 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 short film focuses on art, but it will say much about the social history of people with disability and how they were viewed, and it will bring 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 today.
