This Friday April 3 please join us to watch Crip Camp (Official Selection of the HRW Film Festival), the uplifting and critically acclaimed new documentary from directors Nicole Newnham and Jim LeBrecht, with a live Q&A to follow with the filmmakers.
From finding first love at a summer camp in New York, to becoming the leaders of the global disability rights movement, Sundance Audience Award-winner, executive-produced by the Obamas, Crip Camp will have you smiling ear to ear.
Our live Q&A after the screening will feature filmmakers Nicole Newnham and ex-camper Jim LeBrecht in discussion with Carlos Ríos Espinosa, Senior Researcher and Advocate in the Disability Rights Division at Human Rights Watch (also a former camper at a California summer camp for children with disabilities) followed by an audience Q&A.
