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!

LAKROS - TO JE ZPŮSOB ŽIVOTA

Česká republika, 2014, 63 min

The film is about the lacrosse, and its importance for the Haudenosaunee people (represented by the Iroquois Nationals), and for the Czech people (represented by the lacrosse organisations, scouts, and woodcrafters). In 2011, the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship was held in Prague, the Czech Republic. It was the first time when the Iroquois National lacrosse men’s team visited the Czech Republic, using their Haudenosaunee passports.
However, the film is not focused only on reporting of the Championship agenda. Furthermore, it highlights the essential spiritual, political and sport aspects of the lacrosse for the Haudenosaunne and Czech communities. It also explains the formation of this originally Native American game in the Central Europe, including the hint of political issues in the former communist Czechoslovakia.

DRUHÉ VOJVODOVO: MYSLET OBRAZEM

Česká republika, 2013, 31 min

Vojvodovo is a village in Bulgaria, inhabited in 1900 – 1950 by several hundred Czech Protestants. During their post-war re-emigration to the border areas of the South Moravia region of Czechoslovakia, they brought along with them the “spirit” of their world. The film tries to bring this world back through video-elicitation. Visual pictures of the Vojvodovo scene fade to the people who gradually fill the recording with the meaning of their experiences, just as a figurine symbolizing the community is being dressed in the film. Among the guardians of the legacy today, besides Vojvodovo and their offspring and descendants, are the professional ethnographers who have succumbed to the magic of Vojvodovo and who have taken part in the reconstruction of its picture with their texts. A similar role is played by the film itself, a multivocal visual narrative constructed both “here” and “there” (in South Moravia and in Bulgaria), another Vojvodovo. The aspect of geographic distance is suppressed, and in the foreground stands a mutuality distributed by professional ethnographers, the Internet, and meetings with (ex)Vojvodovians. All of which poses the question – where is Vojvodovo today?
