This documentary explores the lives and friendships between people with and without disabilities as they unite to create a film.
From the filmmaking team that brought you HBO's "Superheroes" comes our next film...
"Zeno Documentary" (working title) is a feature length documentary about a camp for people with and without disabilities that gathers in Los Angeles once a year to make an original narrative film. This year the Zeno gang made a Western film. This documentary is about the making of that Western.
In "Zeno Documentary" we explore the close friendships that are made between people living with and without disabilities. People of all ages and abilities, including people with Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Autism, Cognitive Delay, Williams Syndrome and Spina Bifida, come together to take part in the filmmaking process at the Zeno Mountain Farm Film Camp. At the camp, they get the chance to do amazing activities that would otherwise be impossible to do without assistance. They get the opportunity to experience and discover the creative and adventurous sides of their lives.
Over the course of camp, we documented the campers and counselors as they worked together as cast and crew to make "Bulletproof", a Western film shot on location around Southern California. At the camp, one camper is paired with one counselor. The "Zeno Documentary" examines the friendship and love that develops out of these relationships, as they work together to create a film in an environment where no one is treated as if he or she has a disability.
We are asking for money to help us finish our documentary film. Every dollar helps and takes us one step closer to reaching our goal.
