Barack Obama: Great Expectations

How to get to Heaven with the Hutterites

Thursday 7th, 9pm, BBC2

One man’s isolated religious community is another man’s cult. This fascinating documentary suggests, the line between the two is often far from clear. Director Lynn Alleway spent four months with the Hutterites, an American sect whose dress sense, spiritual tradition and facial hair bear a passing resemblance to the Amish. Alleway probes gently at fault lines underpinning gender roles, a limited gene pool and the general, all-pervading sense of utter joylessness. And eventually, she manages a film that’s revealing, thought-provoking and even mildly poetic.
