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!

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.

„Together as one“ shows the social use of kola nut in Nso´ society. Nso´ is an ethnic group in the North West region of Cameroon. The Nso´ population counts Christians, Muslims and followers of traditional religious beliefs.
This film shows what a thing, a nut or a natural resource can mean to people in Nso´ society. Kola nut is an item around which the feeling, experience, sense, and lived „reality“ of belonging, togetherness, being together, unity, oneness, friendship and peace is being expressed. The kola nut thus play an important role in bringing very diverse people together, irrespective of their religion, village, quater, or thoughts. In this sense, kola nut brings about a feeling of togetherness, felowship and belonging to a group.

Lamtur Tanlaka Kilian from Cameroon has diploma from History from the University of Ngoundere in Cameroon and Master in Visual Cultural Studies from teh University of Tromsø , Norway.

Can rap be a way out of the prison?
Hip Hop is often associated with drugs and violence and therefore seen by many as a way into prison, but Alma Negra, DJ Roky and New York, three inmates at Distrial prison in Bogota, Colombia, demonstrate the opposite. For two hours a day they are allowed to leave the courtyard to write and practice their music. Rap enables them to protest and share their experiences in life. This film tells their story and the impact Hip Hop has on them.

Simon is an ethnographic researcher and filmmaker from Utrecht, Netherlands. He attained an MA in Visual Anthropology from the Granada Centre, University of Mancester and BA in Cultural Anthropology from teh University of Utrecht.
