A Pointless Barn-raising: A discussion on Witness
Show Notes

This week, it's time for the MennoBrarians to tackle the 1985 film, Witness. As you can probably tell from the length of this episode, there was a lot to say, and we still managed to not even touch on the dancing and much of the bonnet removing! There may be a follow up episode some day.  We do discuss how pacifism is portrayed, the romance, the unnecessary barn-raising scene, 1985 Harrison Ford, and why the Amish in Lancaster County were not pleased with the film. 

Content note: some violent scenes are discussed in non-graphic detail.
