15 yrs 92 minutes 2007 7.4

Weng Weng was in the 1980s Philippines' biggest movie star. But with his 84 cm and 20 kg, he was at the same time the smallest. In the Philippines, unbelievable 300 films were made every year and with 007-inspired action films like For Your Height Only, Weng Weng became "Mini-Bond" with the entire Philippine people. 30 years after the actor's heyday, the Australian cult film expert and documentary filmmaker Andrew Leavold goes to the Philippines to find out what is really true about the legends of Weng Weng. It will be a journey that captures a fascinating life story and, among other things, for Leavold to face the feared dictator Marcos' widow...
