Ville de Nains

D I Ò S C U R I

Pernambuco, North-East of Brazil. A little, almost unknown village in the middle of nowhere: Itabahianina. They used to call it “a cidade dos anões”, the city of dwarfs, as the majority of the population were little men due to a hormonal deficit caused by the huge amount of marriages between relatives. Nowadays, this little population is going to disappear. In a modern world made of technologies, medicines able to heal almost every disease, human beings which yearn for perfection, it seems that there’s no room for them. Here are the testimonies of Beatriz and Juana, two dwarf sisters, in their everyday struggle to live a normal life in this world of giants.
