Sarah Colt Produces PBS Film The Amish

By IRP Staff, February 28, 2012

Sarah Colt, a spring 2004 IRP Fellow, is a senior producer of "The Amish," which airs tonight at 8 p.m. on PBS.

More from the PBS website: "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?"

As an IRP Fellow, Colt profiled efforts by Namibia's leaders to redistribute land in a country where there is still a vast disparity in land ownership.
