‘Summer in the Forest’ is a film about Jean Vanier and the L’Arche Communities in which people with learning disabilities and assistants share their life together. Faith and Light is a sister organisation to L’Arche. 
Summer in the Forest” (PG) is a delightful film which follows a few adults with learning difficulties at two of Jean Vanier’s L’Arche communities – one near a forest in a suburb of Paris and one in Bethlehem. 
Jean Vanier has founded 151 L’Arche communities spread over 5 continents.  He is the author of several Christian books and winner of the 2015 Templeton prize.  Now in his eighties he appears in the film along with some of the residents.

The film will be showing for one screening only at Little Theatre cinema in Bath at 3.30pm this coming Wed. 26th July and is well worth seeing.
