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!

Antropofest 2018 What roads did the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Rio Olympic Games pave for Brazil? Along three years of navigating through the daily lives of three Brazilians, one indigenous, one African and one European descendant, the documentary We must be dreaming explores what the World Cup and the Olympic Games have brought to the lives of the people of Rio de Janeiro and to what degree the biggest sport events of the planet have brought the dreams and opportunities they promise.

David Bert Joris Dhert is a Belgian documentary filmmaker working in the field of visual anthropology. Since 2010 he lives between Belgium and Brazil, where he has realized a film about the changes the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games brought to the lives of his Rio co-citizens. His work has been invited for documentary film festivals, ethnographic film festivals as well as for exhibitions for contemporary art.

ACROSS GENDER

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.

MAKING A LIVING IN THE DRY SEASON

Antropofest 2018 Set in the highlands village of Katuwo, the film is an intimate portrait of the day-to-day life of a family living in an agro-pastoralist farm in Namibe, Angola. Through the filmmaker's request to her host Madukilaxi to put her skills into the making of a doll, the film addresses a twofold notion of labour taking place in the dry season: their shared doll-crafting and making a living. Lipuleni, Madukilaxi's toddler, follows their twofold labour, and the three of them celebrate their efforts with a feast.

Ines Ponte born in Portugal, and studied Visual Anthropology in the UK, with a background in Documentary and Social Anthropology from home. Since 2006 I have worked as an editor, cameraman, producer, researcher and writing assistant of documentary and research projects in India, Brazil, Portugal, Angola and the UK. After teaching theoretical and practical courses on filmmaking and visuality, I nowadays conceive and collaborate in audiovisual and media projects based in Portugal.
