E8 - Crip Camp (2020)

Lady and the Ramp

Today we rave about Crip Camp, a 2020 documentary film directed by Nicole Newnham and fellow wheelie James LeBrecht. Its a genuinely joyous portrait of a "disabled woodstock" summer camp where a bunch of cripples find community and confidence in their formative years - experiences they use to inform their advocacy and autonomy in adulthood. We also reflect on overcoming internalized ableism, surviving secondary school spec ed lunchrooms, and a hilarious body swap wheel-breakers scenario that testifies to our our compassion for our able-bodied friends.
