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 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.

After having worked for 18 years in the U.S., the „sans-papier“ Richar returns to his country Ecuador with his new American wife. Although divorced from his former wife, he is still very attached to his three children.
The reunion with the family and with old friends shows in a personal way the tensions as well as the hopes and the courage to face the difficult reality of a migrant. The filmmaker, to whom Richar is linked by a friendship since an anthropological field reasearch 30 years ago, follows him during the first weeks of his return to his village in the Andes.

Hans-Jurg is born in Zurich, Switzerland. He studied cultural Anthropology in Zurich and Ecuador where he met the main character of the movie. He has made various documentaries.

Two filmmakers dive into an ancient rite of manhood in Islamic Java – the tender and raucous sport of the singing doves, the Indonesian Nascar. When General Zainuri announces The National Perkutut Championship, thousands of Muslim men arrive at the grounds. Seven hundred poles stand in the center. Men hoist their doves – perkutut – seven meters up and dangle them ina sea of colorful cages.
A team of judges passes trought the forest of tall posts straining to discern the birds magical coos. If the judges are impressed they score a bird´s dong by tacking a small flag to the pole. After three hours a winner is declared. Winning perkutut sell for tens of milion rupiahs – tens of thousands of dollars.

Jim de Séve teches film production at Union College in Schenectady. Prior to that, he was an instructor at Film Video Arts in NYC for ten year. He sists at the board of Media Alliance, a non-for-profit who operates a sanctuary for independent media.
