Stone Guests is an ethnographic micro-study based on 15 interviews with inhabitants and visitors of Karlovy Vary as well as city representatives and historians. Our goal was to identify changing attitudes to the symbols of socialist past in a city with significant Russian presence. We were interested in emic explanations regarding the changing symbolic and material landscapes of Karlovy Vary. At the level of city administration, this film offers an example of post-socialist selection of appropriate (post-)political symbols.
This film was produced during Summer School of Ethnographic Filmmaking in Žlutice.

Paula Ďurinová is Slovak documentarist based in Bratislava, she has directed several documentary films and founded the Living documentary association. Petra L. Burzová is a member of Centre for Visual Ethnography and has been focusing on research in political science and cultural anthropology. Jiří Majer is anthropologist concentrating on the discourses of mental disorders. He has been doing his field research in Indonesia.

Internet and telecommunications have penetrated the world to a degree of not even being amazing any longer. We take the ability to connect to people and machines on the other side of the planet for granted. How does this technology adapt to a mountain village in Nepal, and how does the mountain village adapt itself to it?
„The High Cybercafe“ depicts the life of two young Nepalis working in a cybercafe in Namche Bazaar, on the trail to Mount Everest. We see their working day and take a side trip to the computer lesson at the local elementary school. We witness the change as it happens.

Tanel Saimre is an Estonian researcher trained in Archaeology (MA from Tartu University, Estonia) and Visual Anthropology (M Phil, Tromsø University, Norway). He is interested in the technological aspect of human existence. He has worked on positions relating to archaeology, filmmaking, software development and many others.

Original purpose of this film was like an attachment to bachelor´s work focused on freetekno subculture and phenomenon of freeparty in the context of Czech Republic area. The main goal is exposed an emic point of view on freeparty to the readers and specatators. The other aim is attempt to explain a certain schism in freetekno czech scene which is caused by influence of economic tendency on the culture industry. There is a connection with desintegration of ideas based on popularization (became popular among the masses), relaxation and last but not least self-realization.

This film is first project of talented anthropologist, who approached to visual anthropology at his „alma mater“ University of Pardubice. At the same university he is now attending master program.

Dialogues: Czech
Production: University of Pardubice, CZ
