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!

Three-year-old Jasmin is having her first haircut. Danish Benedikte has a daughter with Nazyn from Tuva in Siberia. She has chosen to follow the traditions of Nazyn’s shamanistic culture, and therefore Jasmin is now going to visit her dad in Tuva in order to follow the local tradition for three-year-old children: a ritual haircut. As a Danish mum, what elements to choose from the dad’s nomadic culture? We follow the mother and daughter on their family visit to faraway Tuva, six time zones away from Denmark.

 “Afluentes” are small rivers or streams that flow towards a bigger river or lake which, in this case, symbolize Ayahuasca. An ancient psychedelic brew that changes peoples’ perception and brought together, in this film, a teacher, a traveller and a desperate man to the same place. This documentary focuses on the increase of spiritual tourists in the Peruvian amazon, modern shamanism and the healing potentials of traditional plant medicine.
