‘Summer in the Forest’ Screening
8 May 2019
7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Capitol Theatre Manuka
SUMMER IN THE FOREST is a moving study of an extraordinary man—Jean Vanier—and of L’Arche, the international organization of which he is the founder.
Jean Vanier 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-Breuil, France, is one of the many highlights of this beautiful film.
The Canberra screening will include a Q&A session with members of the L’Arche Genesaret community. To secure your attendance at this event, book your tickets now at www.summerintheforest.com.au
