Center for Independent Documentary, Inc. (Boston, MA 02135-1032)

Crip Camp: A Documentary

Scripting of a 90-minute documentary that chronicles the 1960s and early 1970s summer camp experience of teens with disabilities and follows the lives of several campers, some of whom became lifelong civil rights advocates for people with disabilities.

Just down the road from Woodstock, in the late 1960s and early 1970s, a parallel revolution blossomed in a ramshackle summer camp for disabled teenagers. Steeped in humor and the music of the era, Crip Camp explores the universal experience of summer camp awakenings that would transform lives and shape the future of the disability rights movement. Told from the point of view of former camper Jim LeBrecht, the film traces the journeys of campers—both successful and tragic—up to the present day, in this compelling and untold story of a powerful journey towards inclusion.
