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!

Stone Guests is an ethnographic micro-study based on 15 interviews with inhabitants and visitors of Karlovy Vary as well as city representatives and historians. Our goal was to identify changing attitudes to the symbols of socialist past in a city with significant Russian presence. We were interested in emic explanations regarding the changing symbolic and material landscapes of Karlovy Vary. At the level of city administration, this film offers an example of post-socialist selection of appropriate (post-)political symbols.
This film was produced during Summer School of Ethnographic Filmmaking in Žlutice.

Paula Ďurinová is Slovak documentarist based in Bratislava, she has directed several documentary films and founded the Living documentary association. Petra L. Burzová is a member of Centre for Visual Ethnography and has been focusing on research in political science and cultural anthropology. Jiří Majer is anthropologist concentrating on the discourses of mental disorders. He has been doing his field research in Indonesia.

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.

OUT INTO WORLD WITH CHEESE

Švýcarsko, 2013, 66 min

The Kyrgyz Organisation CBT (Kyrgyz Community Based Tourism Association) made an advertisement in an alpine newspaper with the help of a Swiss Tourist. They were looking for a cheese maker to teach interested women in a mountain region village in Arslanbob about cheese making. Maike Oestreich, a cheese maker and farmer based in Switzerland decided to spend her summer in the Kyrgyz mountains for once rather than on an alp in Switzerland. She has never crossed the borders of Europe before.
The movie shows, how this specific knowledge is transferred and transformed in a completely different context and what kind of problems arise, when different actors with theirs different intentions are involved in a kind of voluntary development aid project.
The filmmaker was following the cheese maker from her working place in the alpine dairy in Sufers in Switzerland to the world’s largest walnut forest in Arslanbob to accompany and observe her ongoing project.

Ramona Helena Sonderegger is Primary teacher and has BA in Social Anthropology, Psychology and Political Sciences at the University of Zurich.
