Special Film Event-Arts Access presents A Series of Fortunate Events: Crip Camp

RAIN PLAN: In the event of rain, this outdoor screening will be moved indoors to the SECU Auditorium.

Arts Access’ sixth A Series of Fortunate Events (SOFE) program includes this Oscar-nominated documentary about a groundbreaking summer camp that inspires a group of teens with disabilities to find community, individuality, and their voices to shape the disability rights movement. Cosponsored by Disability Rights North Carolina (DRNC), this outdoor screening features a recent interview with acclaimed international disability rights advocate and Crip Camp star Judy Heumann and Virginia Knowlton Marcus, DRNC’s CEO, reflecting on Heumann’s incredible experiences at the helm of a revolution.

Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution (2020). Directed by James LeBrecht, Nicole Newnham, 108 min., R

Crip Camp is the story of how teens with disabilities became revolutionary activists and shaped a culture of love, pride and self-acceptance. “Crip Camp is both a gripping look at the history of the disability rights movement and a timely call to action, urging us to explore our own duty to fight for the dignity of all people.” –President Barack Obama, Executive Producer
