Editorial Reviews

It's fascinating to study various movements, beliefs, and other religious aspects found in Christendom, and that includes those with our Anabaptist roots: Baptists, Mennonites, Amish, some Brethren groups - and the one featured in this DVD, the Hutterites. This video is very interesting, though the Hutterites are miles apart from fundamental Baptists on various teachings and practices. The DVD will especially find use among those studying church history and those who live near the Hutterites, desiring to better understand them and their ways. But almost all people will enjoy the presentation. The communal-living Hutterites are often equated with the Amish, but the viewer will learn notable differences in the two lifestyles.

This film introduces us to communities of Christians who live separately from the rest of secular society. Some of the practices of the Hutterite communities are similar to Amish or Mennonite practices. However, unlike the Amish, Hutterites do make use of electricity and mechanization. This film follows the Hutterite communities from South Dakota and into Canada.

The cooperative nature of their society could spark discussions about how communities can work together for the greater good. This film has a run time of 58 minutes but certain clips could easily be used to spark discussion. Due to the graphic scene during the annual duck killing, this film is not appropriate for young viewers.
