Summer in the Forest

Four people who have intellectual disabilities live in a commune next to a beautiful forest near Paris. Like countless others, they were labeled 'idiots,' locked away and forgotten in violent asylums, until the 1960s, when the young philosopher Jean Vanier secured their release. Providing a model that has thus far been adapted in 35 nations, the commune offers people with disabilities a place where they needn’t awkwardly fit into mainstream society, instead can comprise a society of their own.
