In Okharbot village of Western Nepal a few persons still know the age-old traditional practise of mining, smelting and casting of copper. The copper has a number of symbolic meanings and economic aspects connected to exchange and healing properties, as well as being the Hindu god Shiva. The complex caste system of Nepal, although abolished, still structures the lives of most people. The untouchable smiths, the Kami, produce one of the purest metals in Hindu cosmology. The film follows Ujir, the foreman, who guides the steps of the mining and smelting. During the smelting work the festival of Dassain took place in the village. The festival is part of the social and cultural context presented in the film along with the traditional smelting process of copper.
Dipesh Kharel is an independent documentary filmmaker from Nepal about to finish his PhD research in film and social anthropology at the University of Tokyo in Japan. He received a Master of Philosophy in documentary film studies from the University of Tromsø in Norway.
Frode Storaas is a professor of visual anthropology at the University Museum of Bergen, Norway. His anthropological research has mainly been with pastoralists in Eastern Africa. A theme conveyed in many of his films has been how cultural traditions and ideas influence everyday life. Storaas is gen.sec. of NAFA, a worldwide network for visual anthropology, and the NAFA collection of anthropological films.

One of the possible ways of presenting the work of anthropologists and ethnologists, through which they are trying to understand the world arounds us, comes by means of ethnographic film. Similar efforts are also typical for film documentarists who can often uncover features of today´s society and spread them to the public. Both sides are linked together by the constant reflexion of own efforts coming out from its marginal position – searching for their own creative identity. Together with guests of the debate we will attempt to look closer at the specifics and background of visual anthropology and documentary, voice the possible common sources of inspiration and consider the possibilities and forms of cooperation.
Guests: Jaroslava Panáková, Ivo Bystřičan
The event is hosted by Michal Pavlásek (Antropictures)
Diskussion will be in Czech, without translation.

Guided by Vestine, an extravagant star of radio nights, the film discovers rwandan sexuality in search of the water that gushes out of the female body. It reveals with humour and sponaneity the mystery of female bliss. Sacred Water immerses you into a modern Rwanda rediscovering its heritage in the most intimate way: female pleasure.
