The Movie Club will have a Zoom meeting on Wednesday, May 19, at 1:30 pm to discuss Inherit the Wind and Crip Camp. Inherit the Wind was shown on the WNET network of PBS as part of Reel 13 Classics (April 24 at 9:00 pm). Crip Camp is available on Netflix. If you did not see or record Inherit the Wind when it was originally broadcast, you may be able to see it through a PBS playback system (such as Thirteen Passport) or other streaming service such as Hoopla. Also, a DVD of Inherit the Wind is listed in the catalog of the Westport Library.
Inherit the Wind is a fictionalized account of the 1925 Scopes “Monkey Trial,” which took place between July 10 and 21, 1925, and resulted in John T. Scopes’ conviction for teaching Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution to a high school science class, contrary to a Tennessee state law.
Crip Camp starts in 1971 at Camp Jened, a summer camp in New York described as a "loose, free-spirited camp designed for teens with disabilities.” Starring Larry Allison, Judith Heumann, James LeBrecht, Denise Sherer Jacobson, and Stephen Hofmann, the film focuses on those campers who turned themselves into activists for the disability rights movement and follows their fight for accessibility legislation.
