Crip Camp

A unique, passionate story.

Jumping from Camp Jened, the first place to give many ’70s teens a chance to experience a different way of life, to the long struggle to establish the American With Disabilities Act, this doc soars.

It’s one of the frontrunners in this year’s Oscar scramble, and deservedly so.

Co-Director James LeBrecht, born with spina bifida, was one the residents at the commune-style camp, run by hippies with a dream of equality.

His flashback footage is combined with modern-day glimpses of where the alumni have gone, and what they’ve accomplished, in their lives.

Impressive in every way.
