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 process of rehabilitation and gentrification in the Eight District of Budapest, Hungary has led to the shrinkage of space especially for children’s play. Set against the backdrop of the world famous novel The Paul Street Boys (Molnár Ferenc, 1906) this film depicts the widening gap between social classes and the reconstruction of the ideas of play, security and leisure.
