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.

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 SISTERHOOD: VISITS WITH MY FRIENDS

Jižní Afrika, 2018, 24 min

The Sisterhood: Visits With My Friends Filmed by Feebee Lee Von Diamond, a transgender wine estate employee in Stellenbosch, South Africa, "The Sisterhood: Visits with my Friends", functions as a continuation and critique of director Roger Horn's 2010 film, 'The Sisterhood" in which Feebee briefly appeared. Feebee observes, provokes, and discusses failed romantic relationships, religion, drunken misadventures, and family loss with her close circle of friends. In opposition to a majority of films on the lives of transgender individuals in the global South, director Roger Horn and Feebee avoid focusing on beauty pageants, sexual organs, or specific transgender rights and instead provide an occasionally uncomfortable insight into the daily hopes, fears, struggles, and losses of this group of friends. On a macro level these vineyard workers are often overlooked in contemporary South African society due to the stigma surrounding the regions employees who have endured a long history of exploitation and alcoholism. On a micro level within their own communities due to their sexual preferences and lifestyle choices this group of long time friends share a bond with viewers that is not always one of conviviality, but ultimately reveals their undying support for one another.


Roger Horn lectures in Visual Anthropology at the University of Cape Town, drawing upon his 19 years of experience across various disciplines and media outlets for inspiration. Additionally, Roger is currently pursuing his PhD in Visual Anthropology where he continues to research and expand upon the material presented in his films about Zimbabwean women residing in Cape Town, S.A., "These Objects, Those Memories" (2015), "Migrant Dilemma" (2017), and "Research / Souvenir (Dialogues)" (2018). This first movie was screened on Antropofest 2017.

Wives Alhajji Ibrahim is an Islamic scholar. For 46 years, he has served as judge at the Sultanate of Ngaoundéré in Northern Cameroon. The film follows Alhajji during the last years of his life, focusing on the relationships in a polygamous family, seen from the perspective of the wives and their husband. The film (shot in years 1997-2001 and edited only now) presents a way of life that is typical of the societies and cultures of Borno and Adamaoua provinces (Nigeria and Cameroon) where people living far away from the capital centers, struggle to adapt to modern education, strong marginalization and increasing poverty. In recent years, the region has been under constant threat of the Boko Haram insurgency.

Lisbeth Holtedahl was born in 1946 in Copenhagen, educated in Oslo and Paris (history of art / anthropology). Professor of anthropology and the founding mother of the Visual Cultural Studies Master's programme at UiT, The Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø. Since 1970 visual ethnographic research in Eastern Niger, Northern Norway and Northern Cameroon.

REVENIR (To Return) For years, the stories of West African migrants and refugees have been told through the lenses of foreign journalists. Now there is a story from the inside. Revenir follows Kumut Imesh, a refugee from the Ivory Coast now living in France, as he returns to the African continent and attempts to retrace the same journey that he himself took when forced to flee civil war in his country ... But this time with a camera in his hand. Traveling alone, Kumut will be documenting his own journey; both as the main protagonist in front of the camera, as well as the person behind it, revealing the human struggle for freedom and dignity on one of the most dangerous migratory routes in the world. A controversial film experiment, a courageous journey and a unique collaboration between filmmaker and refugee; which is not without consequences.

David Fedele is an award-winning documentary filmmaker, particularly interested in exploring cultural, humanitarian and social justice issues. His films have been broadcast and screened widely around the world, and he now spends most of his time between the European and African continents. Kumut Imesh, originally from the Ivory Coast, was forced to flee civil war in his country in 2004. Seeking a peaceful and safe place to live, he began the long journey across the African continent before finally arriving in Morocco, where he spent 7 years. While in Morocco he worked closely with NGOs and associations working closely with other migrants, providing support and assistance. In 2013 he met the film director David Fedele in Morocco, and he worked as the translator for the film. During this time, Kumut developed a very keen interest in documentary filmmaking, especially the potential to tell stories from an African perspective, and the original idea to make a film retracing his journey across Africa was born. In 2014 Kumut arrived in Europe, and was granted asylum. He currently lives as a refugee in France, working as a webmaster. He is also the founder and president of ACSORE (Actions of Solidarity for Refugees), an association in France that works for the social and educational integration of asylum seekers and refugees.
