Under the care of the Discalced Carmelite Friars
SUMMER IN THE FOREST is a moving documentary of an extraordinary man—Jean Vanier—and of L’Arche, the international organization of which he is the founder. Jean Vanier is one of the most heart-warming saints of our time. He is a Canadian who single-handedly revolutionised the way in which people with an intellectual disability are seen and cared for, by the simple act of inviting them out of institutions and into his home in the 1960s. ‘Meeting’ some of the current residents of that home in Trosly, France, is one of the many highlights of this beautiful film.
The film will be shown only once in Perth at the Cinema Paradiso on Monday 20 May at 7.00pm. This is a fundraiser for L’Arche Perth. Unless a certain number of people book by 10 May the film will not be screened. This is an opportunity not to be missed.
