The Amish

Die Amish

For western cultures, the observation of this rule and, for example, the "shunning" of electricity are hard to understand, and are part of the fascinating puzzle that begs for an explanation. The documentary shows the historical and social past of these communities, beginning with the founding of the religion. The effect this has made on today's life style of the Amish and Mennonites in America is presented in impressive pictures that gain impact through personal interviews giving explanations for these strict conditions, that sometimes appear to be at least partially absurd. Families and individuals allow a rare glimpse into their lives and tell about their destiny and their conviction.
