This video, written and directed by David Belton, explores the insular religious community, whose intense faith and adherence to 400-year-old traditions has by turns captivated and baffled Americans for more than a century. The film examines the beliefs, lifestyle, and history of the Amish, as well as their complex relationship to mainstream American culture. Beautifully and lyrically photographed, “The Amish” is part history and part observational documentary that takes viewers into the world of the Amish. (120 min.) The video will be shown at the Loffler Senior Activity Center on Jan. 11 at 10 a.m. Register for this video by calling 301-737-5670, ext. 1658, or stop by the reception desk to sign up. (Seating is limited to 16.) Open to individuals 50 years of age and up.
