The Amish: Shunned trailer: the price of cultural protection
I’m fascinated by the Amish, as many people are. How do they manage to maintain their way of life amidst a larger culture that is so very different?
Well, this is one way: by refusing to allow significant contact with the larger culture, even if that means pretending their own family members who’ve left no longer exist.
The Amish: Shunned debuts in the U.S. on Tuesday, February 4, 9pm Eastern as part of PBS’s series American Experience.
