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!

OUR MISSIONARIES

Norsko, 2013, 9 min
Martin Gruber

A small village on the coast of Guinea, West Africa. Missionaries settled here in their effort to bring Christianity to this Muslim dominated area. The villagers still speak warmly about their visitors. Nevertheless, the missionaries left after some years – seemingly in a rush, leaving behind many of their belongings. The film “Our Missionaries” tells the story of a misconceived intercultural encounter using the villagers’ memories and images of the missionaries’ material legacy.
 
Martin Gruber studied Visual Anthropology at Goldsmiths College, London and Social Anthropology at Hamburg University. He works as an ethnographic researcher and filmmaker and teaches visual anthropology. Martin recently completed a PhD on participatory ethnographic filmmaking at the Department of Anthropology and Cultural Studies, University of Bremen.

FREETEKNO SUBKULTURA

Česká republika, 2013, 28 min

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.

Dialogues: Czech
Production: University of Pardubice, CZ

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.
