        No Bigger Than a Minute

        For forty years, four-foot-tall filmmaker Steven Delano has lived his life as a reluctant celebrity, disavowing his dwarf deviance and avoiding both the benefits and potential traumas of real self-discovery. In making this film Steven uses his license-of-stature and a healthy dose of irreverent humor to show first-hand how a genetic mutation marks a person for life. This resource group includes three clips associated with the film, as well as a related activity.

        No Bigger than a Minute: Joe Geib (Clip 1 of 3)

        Performer Joe Gieb talks more about being a little person in this additional clip. He says, "I do a lot of slapstick things on Jay Leno, and people in the LPA (Little People of America) get a little upset, they think it's a little too humorous. For myself, it's the top of my career to be on Jay Leno."
