Dear Friends,

We are sharing two important events created by two important “Do Good” groups. One is a movie about Intellectually and Physically Disabled that will premiere/open on March 23, at the Village East Cinema in New York. I saw this movie and it is a powerful tribute to peace, love and acceptance. The other is Orphan Care in Indonesia, Dalai Lama’s Birthday Celebration, Dr. Kazuko’s Gala Birthday Celebration. Here is the background on them:

1. ‘Summer in the Forest’ Film American Premiere on March 23, NY. NY. The Film Shares a Powerful, Up-Lifting Story of the Intellectually and Physically Disabled. Motivated by Jean Vanier Founder L’Arche Communities Where All Can Live in Harmony. When: Film Premiere, from Friday March 23, 2018 Where: Village East Cinema, 181-189 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10003, National Release April 6th onwards

What the critics are saying: Joyously Uplifting – UK DAILY MAIL. The movie was widely praised particularly among the disability community in the UK e.g. THE LONDON TIMES, THE GUARDIAN…. Jean Lanier received the TEMPLETON PRIZE, first awarded to Mother Teresa in 1973, for his exceptional contributions in the spiritual realm.

IMPORTANT STORY LINE: “Summer in the Forest,” is a story of peace, hope and love for people who are different. They created L’Arche, French for “The Ark,” which brings together people with and without intellectual and physical disabilities to live in community. Today, approximately 5,000 people with disabilities live in 147 L’Arche communities in 35 countries.


If you are interested in helping to change people’s perspectives on disability by promoting the movie please email Trish at: or call 914 741 1818
