NETFLIX ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARIES
Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution (Now on Netflix)
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 make out 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.
This documentary is executive produced by President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama; Tonia Davis and Priya Swaminathan.
