This year, the film group decided to take a look at how different groups and individuals featured in documentaries have influenced our culture. The first documentary in our Documenting Our Culture series, is from American Experience – The Amish. Public television had this to say about the film:
An intimate portrait of contemporary Amish faith and life, this film examines how such a closed and communal culture has thrived within one of the most open, individualistic societies on earth. What does the future hold for a community whose existence is so rooted in the past? And what does our fascination with the Amish say about deep American values? ~Courtesy of WTTW
Stories both factual and fictional about the Amish has never been more popular. Come join us to see why that might be.
All are welcome to attend, no registration is required. The fllm begins at 6:00 p.m. in Meeting Rm. B.
