INTRODUCTION

Antropofest is an international festival of movies with social anthropological themes.

Festival is held by eponymous NGO, formed by social anthropology graduates. The goal of the festival is to introduce the general audience to the movies that could also be one of the important study instruments of our domain. These specific documents will allow us to learn about the life of various human communities, social groups or individuals around the world.

During the festival we will hold debates on current projections and there will be also other accompanying programme.

We are looking forward to you!

This documentary film is an insight into the lives of eight Czech families or individuals living permanently in Sweden. What has this country given them or taken away? What are their views on leaving Czechoslovakia and living in the North after forty years? How do they and their children who were born here perceive Sweden and the Swedish society? The film does not only peek inside the Czech families but also reveals the atmosphere of Swedish towns and villages and tinges everything with original Czech and Swedish music.
