The film asks "What does it mean to be a human being"? After watching Summer In The Forest, you may ask yourself more questions: What does it mean to love? What does it mean to laugh? What does it mean to really spend time with another person? What are my values? How do I live each day? What is pure? What is unconditioned? What is something, one small thing I can do right now, or tomorrow, to more accurately bring the life I live every minute of every day, into conformity with the values that form the core of my being? This is not a Great film, or even a Great Documentary, but if you're lucky, if you're very, very lucky ... and blessed, it will change your life, and elevate you.
