Antropofest 2017 Mummy, mama and daddy; mummy, mama and sperm donor: The film Extended Family offers an intimate insight into two same-sex families' lives, who found a way to create their families within a legal grey zone in Switzerland. Swiss law bans access to adoption and any assisted reproductive medicine for same-sex couples. The portrayed families therefore do not exist officially. Nevertheless, according to estimations, there are between 6'000 and 30'000 children living in rainbow families across the country.

BETWEEN ISLAM AND SACRED FOREST

Antropofest 2017 An anthropologist and a linguist from Germany are trying to understand a ritual taking place in a small village on the coast of Guinea, West Africa. They are told that two seemingly conflicting ceremonies take place during a four-day event commemorating a recently deceased woman: A Muslim celebration of the 40th day after death conducted by a local Imam and the Mkisaata ritual, performed by the members of a Nalu female secret society in honour of its deceased member. As different male parties involved tell the filmmakers their respective vision of the events, the researchers get increasingly drawn into the ritual by the women of the secret society and become part of the performance. "Between Islam and the Sacred Forest" shows the possibilities and impossibilities of audio-visual ethnography.
