TOKU FENUA / 29 MIN

Toku Fenua takes us on an extraordinary journey into the South Pacific and offers a glimpse of life on the remote island of Niulakita in Tuvalu. Niulakita is the smallest, most isolated inhabited island in the world with only 47 Tuvaluans living on 0,4 square kilometres. The director spent several month in this island doing an anthropological fieldwork. Toku Fenua lets us closely participate in the daily routines of three islanders; their dreams and concerns. It also shows the problems that people in such a harsh enviroment are exposed to.

Martin Zinggl, born in Vienna, studied social and cultural anthropology and journalism. He resides as an author and film maker in Vianna and Barcelona and he is currently working in the publication of his first non-scientific book about Tuvalu.

ON THE COMMON GROUND / 25 MIN

On a small hill in the north of Israel the members of a religious kibbutz, a community of artists and an Arab village – who share a politically fraught history including losing homes and reclaming identity – live as neighbours in a hillside. Although villagers of the three communities do not hold many narratives in common, they do share an understanding of the power od mastering them. The way in which each story, and they are often conflicting ones of victim-hood and guilt, pride and wrongdoings, contains the other without neccessarily relating to it, laid bare a sense of unavoidable inter-subjectivity- This film is an attempt to communicate alternative points of views to the often quite stereotypical imagery we, in central Europe, are bound to perceive via dramatic media reports on the situation in Israel. We follow people´s lives in a shared enviroment and begin to understand, that individual identifications to rarely match up with official categories, which are deployed by state sponsored narratives. The governing of those is a powerful tool – therefore the creation of contemporary, shared, narratives of land and people is a politically meaningful act. On Common Ground points to the question if, and how, this can have an effect in a country that is divided within and under constant pressure from the outside.

Sophie Wagner graduated from cultural and social anthropology at the University od Vienna. Now, she is currently finishing her second MA in the Centre of Visual Anthropology at the University of Manchester. She is also working for the Ethnocineca – Vienna´s documentary and ethnographic film fest.

Film Gricko is about a man who who transforms his ideas into actions at one place. At certain moment he is moving from one place to another, from Skopje to Belgrade, into Inex Film.
