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!

MOVIES

ITELMEN STORIES / 68 MIN

Estonia, 2010, 68 min

The action in the film revolves around an ancestrally used practice of hunting sable by net. Set in rural Kamchatka in the Russian Far East, where fewer than 20 speakers of Itelmen remain, the film goes beyond its original aim to recapture a language and a hunting practice that are remembered but no longer in use. Two hunters encounter the wild environs and villages of Kamchatka as a history laden homeland and memories, nostalgia, resignation and hope echo throughout the film.

Liivo Niglas, born in Estonia in 1970 is currently a lecture of ethnology at University of Tartu, Estonia. He also runs an independent production company, Mp Doc, for anthropological documentary films. He has made films in Siberia, Africa, Central Asia and North America. Some of his work are “The Brigade” (2000), “Yuri Vellas´s World” (2003), “Adventure High” (2004), “Making Rain” (2007).

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.
