Produced by Michelle and Barack Obama and directed by Nicole Newnham with Jim LeBrecht, this raucous fist-bump of a film is a 1950s origin story about Camp Jened, affectionately nicknamed “Crip Camp,” a New York summer getaway for kids with disabilities.

Located near Woodstock, the camp was basically run by inexperienced hippies, including founder Larry Allison, with their hearts in the right place. By the 1970s, Crip Camp had become a haven for kids, including LeBreacht (born with spina bifida), who found they could laugh, flirt, fight and be themselves away from a world they often felt alienated from.
