Jean Vanier: The Sacrament of Tenderness (Le Sacrement de la Tendresse) depicts the life of L’Arche’s founder Jean Vanier, a Canadian Catholic philosopher, theologian, and humanitarian.
Founded in 1964, L’Arche is an international federation dedicated to the creation and growth of homes, programs and support networks for people with intellectual disabilities. Today it is an international organisation operating 152 communities in 38 countries.
Director Frédérique Bedos, made this French film as part of the Le Projet Imagine, whose mission is to produce films that highlight the careers of people who have committed their lives to humanitarianism; ‘heroes’ that inspire and push those who discover them to act for a good cause.
Ms Frédérique will be in Singapore for a post-screening Q&A session with Deputy CEO of Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS), Ms Koh Gee May and Head of the MINDS Institute of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (MIIDD), Mr. Vimallan Manokara.
MINDS Bakers, a therapy programme for MINDS clients, will also be presenting their freshly baked cookies as door gifts for the screenings’ guests.
