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.

Already 8th Antropofest wages at January 27th and 28th 2017.

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

We are looking forward to you!

The square formerly known as Moszkva tér (Moscow Square) in Budapest is the setting for this short film. Through the documentation of people’s voices and activities, this film underlines how the city’s busiest transport hub is also a space that Budapest’s most profoundly marginalised groups rely on for their livelihood and survival.

Kristen Ali Eglinton lives in London and is an applied visual ethnographer and qualitative researcher. She trained as a multi-media artist in the United States before getting a PhD in social and educational research. She has worked with diverse communities across the globe using innovative, digital and multi-media methods.

Norah Benarrosh-Orsoni, born in 1985, is a French PhD Student of Ethnology. She studies the migration process among Roma families living between France and Romania.

SALIENDO ADELANTE / 28 MIN

Walking through Bogotá it would be hard to ignore the overwhelming presence of those who call its streets home. Thousands of young people make up this sub-group of society, a legacy of decades of political instability. This film takes place in one of 26 houses set up by “the Institution for the Protection of Childhood and Adolescence“ (IDIPRON) located in the centre of Bogotá.

Saliendo Adelante explores the life of José who, now in his early 20´s, has lived on the streets since the age of 6. José is now attempting to change his life´s trajectory by talking part in a programme of social rehabilitation offered by the institution. Through the film we are also introduced to the work of Orlando, a teacher at the Institution, and his efforts to offer those like José other ways of visualizing the world around them.

I have recently graduated from a Master´s programme in visual anthropology at Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology at the University of Manchester. This film was my graduation project, which I received a distinction for. On the course I made a number of other films and photography based projects, largely informed and inspired by the principles of observational cinema.
