Film Night: “Crip Camp" - Online
Gather online to watch Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution, an inspiring, feel-good documentary about Camp Jened, a Catskills summer camp in the 1970s for teenagers with disabilities that fostered a sense of community, creativity, and led directly into the American disability rights movement.
In the early ‘70s, teenagers with disabilities faced a future shaped by isolation, discrimination and institutionalization. Camp Jened was their freewheeling Utopia, a place where campers experienced liberation and full inclusion as human beings. “Crip Camp” has a universal message: inspirations that begin in youth can lead to radical, world-changing results.
All are invited; discussion of the film follows the viewing. Hosted by the Women's Ministry. Barack and Michelle Obama serve as executive producers of the film under their Higher Ground Productions banner.
Note: this Film viewing is by Broadview video conference only. A link to access the meeting will be sent to registrants on Monday morning, October 5.
