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!

At the blacksmith market in Maroua, in the Far North region of Cameroon the hammers clang all day long. Here the local blacksmiths turn scrap iron into objects for everyday use. Car bodies become wheelbarrows, truck wheels are transformed into ploughs and smaller pieces of scrap iron end up as spoons. The film is a portrait of Abakar, a young creative blacksmith pursuing his dream to medernize his workshop and to established a blacksmith enterprise. Following Abakar at the work at his workshop, at home with his family, at the meetings and exhibitions movie presents a persistent struggle of an individual to fulfill his  dreams of successful enterpreneurship, by bringing seemingly unusable pieces of iron back to life.

Konrad Pilot was born in Poland. He studied Social Anthropology with Philosophy and religion Studies as minors at the LMU in Munich, Germany and Visual Cultural Studies in Tromsø, Norway. Noise That Brings Money is his first film.

The film is poetic portrayal of a young woman who, eager to be an active citizen, is trying to come to terms with a complicated history of the continent. Alana Hunt is a curator in Aboriginal community art center. White employees work with Aboriginal artists who tell the history of the Aboriginal nation Giya throught art. Alana tries to help others in all possible ways which makes her more of a social worker and a close friend of the local people. The complicated postcolonial situation in Australia forces her to the question the client-based approach ant the actual contribution of the white people to the Aboriginal community.

THE HIGH CYBERCAFÉ

Internet and telecommunications have penetrated the world to a degree of not even being amazing any longer. We take the ability to connect to people and machines on the other side of the planet for granted. How does this technology adapt to a mountain village in Nepal, and how does the mountain village adapt itself to it?
„The High Cybercafe“ depicts the life of two young Nepalis working in a cybercafe in Namche Bazaar, on the trail to Mount Everest. We see their working day and take a side trip to the computer lesson at the local elementary school. We witness the change as it happens.

Tanel Saimre is an Estonian researcher trained in Archaeology (MA from Tartu University, Estonia) and Visual Anthropology (M Phil, Tromsø University, Norway). He is interested in the technological aspect of human existence. He has worked on positions relating to archaeology, filmmaking, software development and many others.
