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!

MOVIES

ULICE SPOJUJE

A. Dvořáková

The movie is playing out in the streets of Prague and presents us Jiří who has been earning a living as a street musician for a couple of years. In the interview, Jiří reflects the issue of the legitimacy in Prague and ever-changing permissions for street production. Last but not least, the movie provides an insight into the conflicts and friendships which are developing in the streets every single day.

DRUHÉ VOJVODOVO: MYSLET OBRAZEM

Česká republika, 2013, 31 min
M.Pavlásek
31.01.2015 18:20

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?

Director, camera, script, edit: Michal Pavlásek
Production: The Institute of Ethnology of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, v.v.i.

Language of dialogues: Czech, Bulgarian
Language of subtitles: English

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.
