“Crip Camp”: Film Review Podcast

Posted: April 6th, 2020 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | 1 Comment »

As I’ve mentioned before, I cherish the moments when a film I’ve never heard of shows up out of the blue and steals my heart.

(Thank you, Jeff and Susan, my film buff friends, for the recommendation.)

Such is the situation with “Crip Camp,” an endearing documentary about how a summer camp in the Catskills in the early 70s just for kids with handicaps was the genesis of the disability civil rights movement.

But first, the camp allowed these amazing humans to feel their humanity and find some dignity.

Lots of sweet black and white footage from those camp days here. Followed by a chronicle how those from that experience were front and center, forcing Congress and the government to pass and then enforce empowering, long time coming, long overdue legislation.

For more, about this splendid bit of cinema, including where you can watch –It has a 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating — listen to the podcast below:
