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!

At the blacksmith market in Maroua, in the Far North region of Cameroon the hammers clang all day long. Here the local blacksmiths turn scrap iron into objects for everyday use. Car bodies become wheelbarrows, truck wheels are transformed into ploughs and smaller pieces of scrap iron end up as spoons. The film is a portrait of Abakar, a young creative blacksmith pursuing his dream to medernize his workshop and to established a blacksmith enterprise. Following Abakar at the work at his workshop, at home with his family, at the meetings and exhibitions movie presents a persistent struggle of an individual to fulfill his  dreams of successful enterpreneurship, by bringing seemingly unusable pieces of iron back to life.

Konrad Pilot was born in Poland. He studied Social Anthropology with Philosophy and religion Studies as minors at the LMU in Munich, Germany and Visual Cultural Studies in Tromsø, Norway. Noise That Brings Money is his first film.

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.

TOKU FENUA

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.

Production, director, camera: Martin Zinggl
Dialogues: Tuvalian, English
