A couple of weeks ago I was reading an article about Israeli politics and found myself turning to Wikipedia to fill in some of the gaps in my knowledge. Approximately 200 Firefox tabs later I found myself watching orthodox Jewish women’s headscarf howtos on Youtube, learning about Third Order Franciscan monks and nuns, and — eventually — watching documentaries about Anabaptist sects in North America.
This is one of the most interesting I found:
It’s a 1-hour documentary about Amish family life. A single Amish family went against their church’s teachings and allowed a British documentary crew to come and film them over the course of a year. However, things get really interesting about halfway in, when we find out that they’re part of an underground movement within the Amish community. I wonder what happened afterwards, and whether their church found out?
