King Gimp: For Students
The extraordinary, OSCAR® winning documentary, King Gimp follows the life of Dan Keplinger for 13 years from elementary school to his college graduation. His battle to be accepted by society and admitted into mainstream schools, is challenged both by administrators and educators who can’t overlook his cerebral palsy. In high school, he finally finds a voice that the world can hear and respect. With art, and the power of his brush stroke, he finally communicates to those who have not heard before. Always unwilling to give up his dream, his persistence continues to pay off. As he moves across the stage in his wheelchair to receive his college diploma, his friends, his classmates and faculty all rise in a standing ovation.
Many schools and community colleges wish to share King Gimp with their students. To accommodate their policies, Dan agreed to have several words in the narrative he wrote modified for student audiences. King Gimp: For Students also includes several extra scenes showing Dan in physical and speech therapy. Plus, King Gimp: For Students has Dan’s original text in open captions as well as DVD subtitles for the hearing impaired.
