Amish: American Experience
Amish: American Experience Previous Broadcasts
KQED Life: Thu, Mar 1, 2012 -- 1:00 AM
This program explores the insular religious community whose intense faith and adherence to 400-year-old traditions have by turns captivated and baffled Americans for more than a century. It examines the beliefs, lifestyle and history of the Amish, as well as their complex relationship to mainstream American culture. Beautifully and lyrically photographed, the film is part history, part observational documentary that takes viewers into the private world of the Amish.
