**Montana Premiere*

Amish young people turning 16 must decide whether to commit to the rules 
of being Amish (no electricity, cars, divorce, sports, music, birth 
control, jobs for women, education, travel, diversity) or set off alone 
into a world they were raised to shun. For the few months or years while 
they make their decision, they are set free to explore the outside 
world. They call this period of freedom “rumspringa” in their 
Pennsylvania Dutch language, meaning “running around”. Lucy Walker’s 
first documentary follows Amish youngsters through their “rumpspringa”. 
Nominated for an Independent Spirit Award and three Emmys.//
