Crip Camp and Disability Representation in Film

Sunday, January 26, 5:15 p.m.–6:30 p.m.
The Box at The Ray, 1768 Park Ave.

Join The Atlantic, in collaboration with the Ruderman Family Foundation, for a discussion on efforts to increase inclusion for actors with disabilities and broaden awareness of authentic representation and disability issues in film. The event, led by senior editor Lauren Williams, will include a conversation with Nicole Newnham and James Lebrecht, the co-directors of Crip Camp, a documentary tracing the disability-rights movement back to a New York camp for teens with disabilities in the 1970s; director Rodrigo Garcia, whose film Four Good Days is premiering at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival; directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly; and actor and disability advocate Danny Woodburn.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
