7 videos for the 30th Anniversary of the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act)

President George H. W. Bush signing the Americans with Disabilities Act inscribed to Justin Dart, Jr.

JFI’s new post, Cinegogue Sessions Vol. 12, “honors the 30th anniversary of this landmark act with six superb films focusing on people with disabilities.” For each of the 6 films mentioned here they have a special accompanying video either with the subjects or the makers of these films:

  • Anita
  • Crip Camp
  • Dina
  • Keep the Change
  • Life According to Sam

The most interesting is probably thehour-long Q&A with filmmakers Jim Lebrecht and Nicole Newnham, subject and author Judy Heumann, and Bay Area Camp Tawonga alum Maya Herbsman.
