Summer in the Forest, a movie about L’Arche
September 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm| Free
Like countless others, Philippe and Raphael were labeled ‘idiots’, locked away and forgotten in violent asylums, until 1964 when the young philosopher Jean Vanier took a stand and secured their release. Together they created L’Arche, a community 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 is an extraordinarily tender documentary that asks what it means to be human. Here, even the most gentle scenes raise mighty questions.” (New York Times)
