Spend the summer just outside of Paris on May 22 with the people behind a quiet revolution in the treatment and support of those with intellectual disabilities. In 1964 Jean Vanier opened his home to men with disabilities who had been labelled “idiots”, locked away, and forgotten in violent asylums. By doing so, Vanier began L’Arche, which has become a worldwide organization dedicated to creating programs to support intellectual disabilities. The documentary, SUMMER IN THE FOREST, explores not only the beautiful landscape of Northern France, but also the life, work, and faith of Vanier and lives he has changed.
