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!

165. GELLNEROVSKÝ SEMINÁŘ

CASA a Antropofest
26.01.2018 15:00

165th Gellner Seminar
CASA (Czech Association for Social Anthropology) with the support of Antropofest arranges 165th Gellner Seminar.  The guest of the seminar is Mr. Mauro Bucci, Italian filmmaker and visual anthropologist. The topic of the seminar is „Representing Migrations through Ethnographic Cinema”. The phenomenon of migration affecting Africa and Italy, as well as Europe more generally, over the last several years is a favorite object of representation among Western mass media. Mr. Bucci will analyze the ethnographic fieldwork with a camera he undertook to realize “Hotel Splendid”. The fieldwork was based both on author´s  involvement in everyday life experiences of migrants, as well as a number of interventionist practices aimed at improving the asylum seekers’ conditions.

165th Gellner Seminar  takes place on Friday 26th January from 3 p.m. in Café Kampus, Náprstkova 10, Praha 1

BORDERLINE VIEWS: A GOLAN HEIGHTS DOCUMENTARY

Antropofest 2018 The film takes a look at the border between Israel and Syria, through the experience of the Druze community - living in the occupied Golan Heights, of Syrian identity yet in an Israeli reality, and subject to the whims of the region's geopolitics. In the Occupation's 50th year, and with the Syrian Civil War raging, questions arise on the Golan and its Druze community's identities.

Simon Luling
is a US American and German filmmaker, based in France. He has also lived in Canada, the Netherlands, the US, Ecuador and Israel, working primarily as a film/video editor and producer, and occasionally in academic research. Previous work includes Freeway: Crack in the System (documentary about the US drug epidemic and Nicaragua's Contra War), and award-winning South American comedy series, Enchufe.tv. His interest in politics and world cultures (namely in the context of state and nation-building) led him to spend time in the Golan Heights, befriending people in the Druze villages, out of which the film Borderline Views was born.

Antropofest 2018 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.
