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.

MOVIES

HOTEL SPLENDID

Itálie, 2016, 90 min
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.

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.

ACROSS GENDER

Nizozemí, 2016, 24 min
Anouk Houtman
26.01.2018 21:30

Antropofest 2018 'Across Gender' is an ethnographic film about the negotiation of visibility of trans people in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Focusing on personal experiences of different people who 'cross gender' we follow: LGBT-activists, drag performers, and students of an Islamic school for transwomen. We learn about their experiences and how they view Indonesian society. Through different people and spaces, 'Across Gender' gives a varied image of trans people in Yogyakarta and challenges stereotypes. The stories are documented in the midst of anti-LGBT sentiments and actions in early 2016 and illustrate how the negotiation of visibility is an ongoing and difficult process.

Anouk is based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and has a background in visual anthropology and gender studies. After her bachelor's in Amsterdam, she continued with a master's in visual anthropology in Leiden. During her fieldwork in Indonesia, Anouk made an ethnographic film called 'Across Gender' which focuses on the negotiation of visibility when one 'crosses gender' in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. She is interested in people's personal stories and experiences and believes film is a tool for social change. She is currently pursuing a second MA in Gender Studies.
