Crip Camp by Nicole Newnham and Jim Lebrecht

Down the road from Woodstock, in the early 1970s, a parallel revolution blossomed in a ramshackle summer camp for disabled teenagers. Crip Camp explores summer camp awakenings that would transform lives and shape the disability rights movement, and America, forever. Told from the point of view of former camper Jim LeBrecht, and steeped in the humor and music of the era, the film traces the journeys of campers up to the present day, in this untold story of a powerful journey towards inclusion.

Crip Camp is a 2018 recipient of Working Films’ Impact Kickstart award, which includes in-kind impact campaign strategy development.
