What should antropological films be like? How to come to terms with alternating view of the world and with stereotypes in us? In a 3-year span, this issue kept busy an execution team around Milan Durňak who went back to his home-village to capture life of Roma people together with their Ruthenian neighbours. Every stay in the Roma colony brought one episode of a film which captures everyday life, tries to describe problems which trouble them and constantly strive to jump over their own shadows. The spectator has a chance to encounter a story in a social-cummunity centre with a hard-working mayor and festivals in the village and think about the worries and merriments of one Roma colony.

Milan Durňak graduated at Charles Univerity in Prague, main field ethnology. Currently he is working at the University as a Phd student. In his studies, he mainly deals with visual anthropology and creation of antropological films.

Has a degree in Social Anthropology (Portugal, Netherlands), a post-graduation in documentary direction (Portugal), and presently develops work within visual anthropology (United Kingdom).

Hungary, 2011, 8 min

After the end of the Cold War, a lot of army bases in the East Europe became abandoned. Soldiers and their families have left, roaring of fighters has died away, univited guests stopped comming to public places. How do inhabitants of the formerly adjacent villages feel about the stay of Russian soldiers twenty years later?

A short documentary Cold War Neighbours raises a question of how global events are reflected in local conditions. People, who live in the neighbourhood of a huge army base abandoned by the invaders in Hungarian Kunmadarás, talk about what the stay of the soldiers meant for them. And what their absence means for them today.

The film originated in the scope of a workshop “Anthropological Filmmaking” organised at Central European University in summer 2011.      
The authors are social anthropologists who are studying or working at various universities in Central Europe. Their common interest is visual anthropology. 

Directors: Tomáš Hirt (Czech Republic),Soňa G. Lutherová (Slovak Republic),Sergiu Novac (Romania),Kata Varsányi (Hungary)
Production:Central European University, Maďarsko
Language of dialogues: Hungarian
Language of subtitles: English
