Summary
The Amish do not generally permit photography because of their interpretation of the biblical commandment against the making of graven images. This film is an exclusive portrait of a rarely-filmed religious community that separates itself from the world. Photographed over four seasons, the film captures the day-to-day life of a people who have preserved their rural traditions. Rather than use a narrator to comment on this unusual lifestyle, the Amish speak for themselves. Stirring Amish hymns, composed in the 1500's and handed down orally, complete the soundtrack. See also the Filmakers Library film Amish Riddle, giving more views of Amish life
