The French documentary "Summer in the Forest" depicts the lives of four disabled men and their unlikely friend: a philosopher born into a powerful and distinguished Canadian family, Jean Vanier.
Vanier is the founder of L'Arche, a federation of international communities for people with disabilities.
The film tells the stories of four L'Arche community members, Philippe, Michel, Andre, and Patrick, while asking viewers what it means to be human, and what it means to be happy.
"What is it to be a human being? Is it the power? If it's power then we would kill each other," Vanier said in the film, which opens in New York on March 23, and will have select showing across the country.
