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!

Concrete high-rise building area Petržalka - one of the biggest in Europe - has a lot of negative attributes. In general, it is perceived as a prototype of a low-quality acommodation created at the times of socialism. What is the reality like? How are the concrete homes seen by their inhabitants at the beginning of the third millenary? The film attempts to scatch the anthropo-social way of being at this concrete area.
