Movie Info

In the early 1970s, teenagers with disabilities faced a future shaped by isolation, discrimination and institutionalization. Camp Jened, a ramshackle camp "for the handicapped" in the Catskills, exploded those confines. Jened was their freewheeling Utopia, a place with summertime sports, smoking and makeout sessions awaiting everyone, and campers felt fulfilled as human beings. Their bonds endured as they migrated West to Berkeley, California -- a promised land for a growing and diverse disability community -- where friends from Camp Jened realized that disruption and unity might secure life-changing accessibility for millions.

  • How strange - and how telling - that despite the wealth of big-screen documentaries released in the past 20 years, the story behind the remarkable Crip Camp has gone so long untold.

  • Mostly, this is an empowering feel-good documentary about a small group of people who came together in the right place at the right time.

  • "Crip Camp" shows change can come from anyone, anywhere at anytime. It's a lesson that should always be taken to heart but rings especially true now.

    April 1, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • The riveting tale of a decades-long radical revolution that changed the world forever.

    March 27, 2020 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • [It] sounds as if it's going to be Good for You rather than good, but it actually turns out to be both - as well as surprising, which is surprising in itself, given that inspirational civil rights documentaries tend to be more alike than unalike.

    March 27, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Crip Camp conveys, as few films do, a sense of lives lived furiously and passionately across a vast stretch of time.
