First documentary of the month. An uncomfortable one because really; did anything change in how society handles disabled people in the past fifty years?
Crip Camp is about Camp Jened, but so much more. About the American government lacking in viewing disableds as citizens instead of their disability. They fight (for) laws, but first and foremost for the right of a multi-dimensional life.
The documentary is completely American focused, connecting to civil rights, racism and sexism. That also makes it easy to pretend it’s a local thing, but of course we know better.
That leaves Crip Camp as a reminder of how much change still has to happen to give disabled citizens the room in society they deserve.
