The film was made at the request of a disabled friend of Herzog's, specifically in order to raise awareness for the cause of the disabled in West Germany. Herzog compares the film to his earlier The Flying Doctors of East Africa in that it has very little stylization, and is, he says, "dangerously conventional." During production of Handicapped Future, Herzog met Fini Straubringer, and this meeting led directly to Herzog's more well-known film Land of Silence and Darkness.
