Summary
This fascinating film on the Amish in Pennsylvania shows a dynamic people, who, contrary to popular belief, are not relics frozen in time. Through gentle modification of their rules they are able to prosper in commercial enterprises. While they shun modern conveniences that may pull the community apart, they are permitted to use them in their businesses. The romantic image of the Amish on horse drawn carriages is only part of the story. In reality they are allowed to use trucks and taxis in their work, as long as they don t own vehicles or drive themselves. Telephones can be used for business communications but not for social calls. Even electricity can be brought into workshops. We meet an Amish family and learn from them how they conduct their daily life. Sociologist Dr. Donald Kraybill explains the origins of their customs, giving the rationale behind their rejection of the modern world. He speculates on the prospects for their cultural survival in the twenty-first century. For another view of Amish life see the Filmakers Library film The Amish:Not to be Modern
