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!

Říkejte mi strýcu The film depicts the vanishing elements of traditional folk culture in Wallachia. A record of wood transportation on a sledge in the Beskydy mountains is a very valuable part of the film. The film also tells the story of a 96-year-old man who represents the vanishing "old" Wallachia while living in the current technological era.


Vít Smrčka, the film’s director, graduated in journalism and ethnography. He is the author of a film on hauling wood on sledge in the Krkonoše mountains and also published a book on the history of ethnography. The co-author and cinematographer of the film Aleš Smrčka is also an ethnographer.

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.

THE SISTERHOOD: VISITS WITH MY FRIENDS

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.
