Willowbrook: the Last Great Disgrace - preview
July 29, 2009
This is a preview of a 28-minute documentary made in 1,972 by Executive Producer, Albert T. Primo and correspondent Geraldo Rivera.
Focusing on the Willowbrook Institution located in Staten Island (one of the boroughs of NYC), NY, this film was one of the first exposés ever done on local television. As a result of this program airing on WABC-TV, the manner of treating people with disabilities was forever changed.
This film is part of the Sprout Touring Film Festival (showcasing films related to the field of developmental disabilities). Click the following link to see a complete listing of all the films available through this festival: http://stff.gosprout.org
