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

GRAB AND RUN

Španělsko, Německo, 2017, 85 min
Roser Corella
27.01.2018 14:00

Antropofest 2018 Since Kyrgyzstan gained its Independence in 1991, there has been a revival of the ancient practice of Ala-Kachuu, which translates roughly as "grab and run". More than half Kyrgyz women are married after being kidnapped by the men who become their husbands. Some escaped after violent ordeals, but most are persuaded to stay by tradition and fear of scandal. Ala-Kachuu was outlawed during Soviet era and remains illegal under the kyrgyz criminal code, but the law has rarely been enforced to protect women from this violent practice.

Roser Corella (born in Barcelona) is an Independent Documentary Filmmaker currently based in Berlin. Roser began her career as video-journalist for the catalan TV, but her interest in human stories behind global issues moved her to start self-producing and developing a personal vision within the documentary field. Her work has been shown worldwide, winning awards such as POYI – Picture of the Year International- in USA, and CANAL+ France Award at Women's Film Festival of Créteil. Her fascination for the documentary genre has led her around the world in search of stories to tell. Not only to witness but to challenge and raise critical questions about contemporary societies.

Mauro Bucci
26.01.2018 18:30

Antropofest 2018 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. The documentary, which was self-produced, was completed following 12 months' of fieldwork, and is based on the ethnographic method of participant observation.

BORDERLINE VIEWS: A GOLAN HEIGHTS DOCUMENTARY

Izrael, Sýrie, Francie, 2017, 28 min
Simon Luling
26.01.2018 20:30

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.
