Synopsis: A 3-foot-something actor, comedian, disability advocate strives to retake the stage following a life endangering diagnosis.
Long Synopsis: Andre the Anti–Giant is the remarkable journey of 3-foot-something actor, comedian, and disability advocate Andre H. Arruda. Though born with a rare genetic condition, Andre hasn’t let it – or misguided ableist preconceptions – prevent him from fulfilling his show business dreams.
Supported by a loving family, Andre defied an early prognosis that he wouldn’t live beyond his teens, becoming a regular at Toronto comedy clubs despite their limited accessibility and the harassment of those who insist on defining him by his stature.
When a new medical complication threatens to leave him paralyzed, Andre must summon that defiant spirit yet again in order to retake the stage. With insights from his loved-ones, friends, and fellow comics, Andre the Anti–Giant is an intimate and inspirational tale of hope, hardship, and hilarity.
