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!

PREMIERE

BE' JAM BE THE NEVER ENDING SONG

Francie, Švýcarsko, Malajsie, 2018, 85 min
Caroline Parietti, Cyprien Ponson
25.01.2019 20:00

BE' JAM BE the never ending song In Sarawak (Borneo), "the ones who live upstream" are the first affected by deforestation. The Penan, (ex) nomadic hunters, are caught in the eye of that storm : how to go on living when one's entire world is being taken apart, when the landscape, which brought meaning to existence, literally disappears and with it language, customs and the spirits? The film, carried by the song of those who refuse to give in, draws the lines of resistance of each one to that deadly fight. It tells of the intimate interweaving of a sweet and secret way of life with the fight which rages in the shadow of the big trees.

Caroline Parietti and Cyprien Ponson met during a master's degree in documentary writing (CREADOC/France), after personal journeys in anthropology and community social work. Their work explores issues of memory, violence and resistance in the margins. Cyprien earned a bachelor's degree in anthropology at Lyon 2, and Caroline a first year of ethnology in Neuchâtel (Switzerland) before her studies of community social work during which she started to use camera as an emancipation tool.

ŘÍKEJTE MI STRÝCU

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.
