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 9th Antropofest wages at January 26th and 27th 2018.

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

We are looking forward to you!

A short documentary about travelling and the desire to move. It focuses on the ideas and stories of Artesanos – people who live a nomadic lifestyle, travel around Latin America and produce their own jewellery in order to fund their lives. It questions the reasons for choosing this way of life, the significance of travelling and represents their invisibility and intangibility while moving. It is a mix of Super 8, Photographs and sound.

Barbara graduated MA Visual Anthropology at University of Manchester and Munich´s University.

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.

Participatory video, made by  a couple of Indians of the Reserve of Coroa Vermelha, northern Brazil. The young directors approach with their camera the tourists that come to see the Indians, or plan to relax on the Reserve´s magnificent beaches. The filmic encounter between the „ native“ and the „Other“ leads both of them to amore through reflection about the „image“ of Indianness.
