This documentary by British filmmaker Randall Wright explores the vision of Jean Vanier and life in L’Arche. The film is set in L’Arche Trosly (France) and L’Arche Bethlehem with reflections by Jean Vanier.
For over 50 years, L'Arche founder Jean Vanier’s vision has inspired countless people around the world to discover what it means to be human and live together in peace. In this film, the witness of his life and the profound joy that Vanier shares in his community after all these years give added power to his words.
From critical and audience response in the UK and US, we know that Summer in the Forest is connecting deeply with people unfamiliar with the lives of people with intellectual disabilities as well as those who are. It’s clear that Vanier’s vision of humanity and the witness of L’Arche are as significant as ever.
