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!

Toku Fenua takes us on an extraordinary journey into the South Pacific and offers a glimpse of life on the remote island of Niulakita in Tuvalu. Niulakita is the smallest, most isolated inhabited island in the world with only 47 Tuvaluans living on 0,4 square kilometres. The director spent several month in this island doing an anthropological fieldwork. Toku Fenua lets us closely participate in the daily routines of three islanders; their dreams and concerns. It also shows the problems that people in such a harsh enviroment are exposed to.

Martin Zinggl, born in Vienna, studied social and cultural anthropology and journalism. He resides as an author and film maker in Vianna and Barcelona and he is currently working in the publication of his first non-scientific book about Tuvalu.

Original purpose of this film was like an attachment to bachelor´s work focused on freetekno subculture and phenomenon of freeparty in the context of Czech Republic area. The main goal is exposed an emic point of view on freeparty to the readers and specatators. The other aim is attempt to explain a certain schism in freetekno czech scene which is caused by influence of economic tendency on the culture industry. There is a connection with desintegration of ideas based on popularization (became popular among the masses), relaxation and last but not least self-realization.

This film is first project of talented anthropologist, who approached to visual anthropology at his „alma mater“ University of Pardubice. At the same university he is now attending master program.
