About this Event

Those we most often exclude from the normal life of society, people with disabilities, have profound lessons to teach us. - Jean Vanier

About the Film

SUMMER IN THE FOREST invites us to abandon the rat race and forge new friendships. Like countless others Philippe, Michel, Andre and Patrick were labeled 'idiots', locked away and forgotten in violent asylums, until the 1960s, when the young philosopher Jean Vanier took a stand and secured their release - the first time in history that anyone had beaten the system. Together they created L'Arche, a commune at the edge of a beautiful forest near Paris. A quiet revolution was born.

About Kindness Cafe + Play

Kindness Cafe + Play will be the friendliest coffee shop in Charlottesville. At Kindness people with and without disabilities will interact as peers. It will challenge our perceptions, inspire us as individuals and transform our community.
