22 year-old Jonathan Novick, a New York City resident with Achondroplastic Dwarfism, has been living in the city for several years. At first, he was surprised to have negative comments thrown about by New Yorkers in public. After several years of numerous offensive encounters, he decided to wear a hidden camera and create Don’t Look Down on Me, a documentary that chronicles a day in his life.
