In honor of the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, join us for a free livestream conversation with filmmakers James LeBrecht and Nicole Newnham as they discuss their 2018 DocPitch winning film, Crip Camp.
In the early 1970s at Camp Jened, a summer camp for disabled teenagers near Woodstock, a revolution was stirring. Besides experiencing all the usual camp activities, the campers also discovered the power of collective action. They returned home determined to improve a world that was decidedly unwelcoming to those with disabilities. Bay Area filmmakers James LeBrecht—a camper at Camp Jened—and Nicole Newnham (The Rape of Europa) provide a remarkably candid portrait of the camp and track the early struggles and triumphs of the burgeoning disability rights movement. This inspiring and joyous film, with strong Bay Area ties, is, ultimately, a universal story of the human spirit and a testament to what can be accomplished when people stick together to fight for their rights. In English. Rated R. Directors: James LeBrecht, Nicole Newnham (US 2020) 106 min
Crip Camp is available to watch on Netflix
