POV: "No Bigger than a Minute"

No Bigger than a Minute is a POV film airing on PBS. And here I am in Korea and I can't watch it!

Aside from the issue of prejudice the adults face is the issue of how normal it's considered to reject a short-statured child in-utero. When Randy Newman crooned, "Short people got no reason to live," he was joking. But in the age of eugenic abortions, it's no laughing matter any more. In an era that prides itself on "celebrating diversity," merely being short can be a death sentence. Signed by your mother.

O brave new world....
