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!

Anna Becková & Lucie Benčíková & Martin Jakub

Film "Úsvitu " tries to infiltrate into the life of one group which protests " against current political situation, consumerism and uniformity". By distribution of posters the group tries to enter to public media sphere of streets and point out what people in this group feel like oppresion or attack on freedom of a man. This battle against capitalism is headed by three guys of „Úsvitu“. Dissatisfaction, opinions and emotions felt from society are main things which connect these guys. Using "film language", the authors try to convey the viewer not only their collective beliefs and feelings, but also specific and personal vision of the world.
