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!

What should antropological films be like? How to come to terms with alternating view of the world and with stereotypes in us? In a 3-year span, this issue kept busy an execution team around Milan Durňak who went back to his home-village to capture life of Roma people together with their Ruthenian neighbours. Every stay in the Roma colony brought one episode of a film which captures everyday life, tries to describe problems which trouble them and constantly strive to jump over their own shadows. The spectator has a chance to encounter a story in a social-cummunity centre with a hard-working mayor and festivals in the village and think about the worries and merriments of one Roma colony.

Milan Durňak graduated at Charles Univerity in Prague, main field ethnology. Currently he is working at the University as a Phd student. In his studies, he mainly deals with visual anthropology and creation of antropological films.

Has a degree in Social Anthropology (Portugal, Netherlands), a post-graduation in documentary direction (Portugal), and presently develops work within visual anthropology (United Kingdom). She has worked also as editor, cameraman, production, research and writing assistant of documentary projects in Portugal.
