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!

MOVIES

ARRANGED LOVE

Switzerland, 2010, 40 min
Sarah Bregy
28.01.2011 18:10

In Tamil Culture the parents are traditionally responsible to find a suitable marrige partner for their children. “Love warriages” exist as well, but are less accepted in society. Sri Lanka people, who migrate to Europe, often continue the tradition of the “arranged marriage”. That means, that young Tamils, who grew up in a western society, get confronted with contrasting ideals concerning marriage.

The ethnographic documentary “Arranged love” discusses, based in three portraits, different ways of young Sri Lankan couples to deal with that issue. The film shows different point of views, what conflicting situations can emerge and what opinions the couples hold on western ways of love amd marriage.
