WINNER - Sundance Film Festival 2020 U.S. Documentary - Audience Award
The liberation movements around race, gender and sexuality have been well-documented. Now Crip Camp shines a light on the overlooked, but equally important disability-rights movement. Its origins trace back to Camp Jened, created for disabled teens in the early 1970s, down the road from Woodstock. Directors Nicole Newnham and Jim LeBrecht (a former Jened camper himself) trace how the camp members became the nucleus for a legal and societal crusade that's still ongoing. Filled with the spirit, music and humor of the era, the film shows how "some success stories only grow more powerful with age, and their ability to inspire action is timeless" (Indiewire).
