Full of laughter and joyously uplifting, Summer in the Forest tells the inspirational story of one man’s extraordinary service to those with disabilities. Like countless others, Philippe, Michel, Andre and Patrick were labeled ‘idiots,’ locked away and forgotten in violent asylums, until the 1960s, when the young philosopher Jean Vanier took a stand and secured their release—the first time in history that anyone had beaten the system. Together they created L’Arche, a commune at the edge of a beautiful forest near Paris and a quiet revolution was born. Now in his 80s and still at L’Arche, Jean has discovered something that most of us have forgotten—what it is to be human, to be foolish, and to be happy. Summer in the Forest invites us to abandon the rat race and forge new friendships. Amid the ancient trees, Philippe, Patrick, Jean and the others welcome us into their lives. If there are rules to break, they will be broken and if there is a truth to be told, they will tell it. Michel wants to share with us his war torn past, Andre is desperate for a date, and young David will prove himself a hero in the fight against the forces of evil. Directed by Randall Wright (Hockney).
