King Gimp: Long Live the King
 

The extraordinary, OSCAR(r) 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. After his life story wins an academy award, Dan's life takes off. 

"Long Live the King" presents two follow-up programs, "The King's Miracle" and "The King of Arts." Find out about Dan's growing celebrity status, his New York art gallery, and who he is as an artist. 
 
Everyone who has seen "King Gimp" will need to see these follow-ups on Dan's life. The award winning documentary and these subsequent releases are used in disability awareness programs in high schools and colleges throughout the country as well as physical therapy, social work, nursing and other health training programs.
