Crip Camp

I really enjoyed this documentary because it was full of life and thrill. It showed the possibility for the disabled community of being reckless, affectionate, and vocal about things they care about. These simple things are unfortunately perceived by the non-disabled community as something uncommon. Moreover, the camp allowed the kids to find a sense of community that they would otherwise never have experienced since their lives at home were very isolated. Finally, I really enjoyed how the camp promoted every kid to share their voices and opinions, especially when many of these kids probably never had a chance to share their emotions and experiences.
