The Amish Shunned

Premiering tonight on PBS (02/04/14), The Amish: Shunned will be on at 8pm Central. This is a 2 hour special on what it is like for the Amish to be shunned from their family, church, and community.

What is it like to be cut off from your faith and your family? The Amish: Shunned follows seven people who have chosen to leave their closed and tightly-knit communities for the outside world, knowing they can never return. Each has paid deeply for their decision. Estranged from loved ones, these former Amish find themselves struggling to make their way in modern America.

The Amish on PBS

Tonight at 7pm Central on PBS, The Amish will be airing on PBS. 

PBS does a fantastic job with their documentaries and I highly suggest you watch this if you can. It's also available to watch on PBS.com or through the PBS app.

An intimate portrait of contemporary Amish faith and life, this film examines how such a closed and communal culture has thrived within one of the most open, individualistic societies on earth. What does the future hold for a community whose existence is so rooted in the past? And what does our fascination with the Amish say about deep American values?
