NARRATIVE SHORT | 16 MIN | 2012

WILLOWBROOK

In 1964, a young pediatrician begins his residency at Willowbrook State School in Staten Island, only to discover that the institution is conducting Army-funded experiments on developmentally disabled children. Based on true events, Willowbrook addresses the awful conditions in which people with developmental disabilities were warehoused and the controversial research experiments that took place in the 1960s.
