Antropofest a spolek "Pomáháme lidem na útěku"
Exhibition – Helping people on the run
In August 2015, Czech media were flooded with news on refugees. Photos were taken at the Hungarian railway station Keleti full of tents, people and children huddling together on the ground or pictures of Serbian highways with crowds of people going on foot touched almost everyone. In September 2015, Czech Team was created, currently bringing together more than 4,000 Czech volunteers, who went to help refugees on the Balkan route. Tens of thousands of people have contributed with financial or material help. This exhibition is held as a thank you to everyone who is not indifferent to the situation of refugees. The authors of the photographs are the volunteers themselves. The photos were from the autumn of 2015 to the summer of 2016.
The exhibition takes places in the foyer of the cinema Ponrepo from Friday 6 p.m. until Saturday 11.p.m.

4000 miles. It's a distance travelled by the Roma in the quest for a new life. In 1996, many Czech Roma left their homes searching for a more respectable and prosperous life in Canada which has established a new migration corridor still being used today. The documentary unveils the view into the life of a Roma community and reveals stories of people many of whom are not sure whether they will be allowed to keep their new home.

Hotel Splendid is an intimate and a collective account of a community of migrants from the African coasts who are living in a reception center for asylum seekers. It is a glimpse into the daily experiences and operation of an Italian hotel turned into an emergency camp for refugees. The documentary interweaves two different story-lines: the dramatic journey undertaken by the migrants to reach Europe, with its load of violence and abuse, and the itinerary that asylum seekers must follow upon their entrance in the camp until the evaluation procedure is over.
Mauro Bucci in an Italian filmmaker and independent researcher in the field of Visual Anthropology. He wrote scientific essays about ethnographic films for the Italian cinema journal «Bianco e Nero», for the ethnographic journal «Visual Ethnography», for a collective volume of anthropological papers published by Clueb. His last essay for the book "Looking with Robert Gardner" has been published by Suny Press in August 2016. Mauro Bucci graduated with honours from the University of Bologna in "Dams" (curriculum Cinema) and has a diploma from the School of Visual Ethnography of ISFCI in Rome. He worked as a one-man crew shooting video, recording sound, and editing footage for "Hotel Splendid", his first work as a cinematographic author.
