The Hutterites

Canada, 1964 (MIFF 1964, The Hutterites)

Director: Colin Low

Over four centuries the Huttentes fled Germany, Hungary, Rumania and Russia in search of a land where they could live as they believed; finally they settled in Western Canada. This finely photographed film takes us on an intriguing visit to one such colony in Alberta.
