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!

GAUR 8 AZOKAN

Spain, 2012, 16 min
Farapi & Monika Hertlová
26.01.2013 17:30

In the Basque country, the local distribution of agricultural products plays a very important role. Despite the strong pressure of foreign import, the traditional markets are an inseparable part of every day life of local people. Thus number of family farms has continued with its first-class production until these days. However, work at a farm is usually connected with a man – a man herdsman, a man farmer, a man trader. Eventhough, a woman is an important part of this world, she is usually overshadowed. But how is the everyday reality of a woman – landowner? To make a woman visible in the context of agricultural production was one of the goals of the documentary „Gaur 8 Azokan“, which resulted from the need of local rural women to emancipate, and whose hard work we do not know at all. The complementary character of gender roles within the rural world is shown in the light of anthropological perspective, and at the end, it will be clear that the rural world could never exist without both components – the productive and reproductive, the male and female.

FARAPI is a consulting company of Applied Anthropology residing in San Sebastian in the Basque country. FARAPI deals with public and commercial orders related to social themes (such as gender equality, migration, minority, market research, etc.). The documentary “Gaur 8 Azokan“ is the second audio-visual output of a longitudial survey concerning the current position of women in the context of rural world in the Basque country.

Monika Hertlova cooperated with FARAPI on the production of the documentary during her working stay. She is also a co-author of short documentary “Don´t dig in to us, we are not dead yet“ (2011), which reflects current activities of Scout Movement in the Czech Republic. At the moment, Monika Hertlova works for the Studio of Visual Ethnography on the Department of Anthropology of Faculty of Philosophy and Art of West Bohemia University in Pilsen in the Czech Republic, where she cooperates on the production of other audio-visual films.
