Stone Guests is an ethnographic micro-study based on 15 interviews with inhabitants and visitors of Karlovy Vary as well as city representatives and historians. Our goal was to identify changing attitudes to the symbols of socialist past in a city with significant Russian presence. We were interested in emic explanations regarding the changing symbolic and material landscapes of Karlovy Vary. At the level of city administration, this film offers an example of post-socialist selection of appropriate (post-)political symbols.
This film was produced during Summer School of Ethnographic Filmmaking in Žlutice.

„Together as one“ shows the social use of kola nut in Nso´ society. Nso´ is an ethnic group in the North West region of Cameroon. The Nso´ population counts Christians, Muslims and followers of traditional religious beliefs.
This film shows what a thing, a nut or a natural resource can mean to people in Nso´ society. Kola nut is an item around which the feeling, experience, sense, and lived „reality“ of belonging, togetherness, being together, unity, oneness, friendship and peace is being expressed. The kola nut thus play an important role in bringing very diverse people together, irrespective of their religion, village, quater, or thoughts. In this sense, kola nut brings about a feeling of togetherness, felowship and belonging to a group.

Lamtur Tanlaka Kilian from Cameroon has diploma from History from the University of Ngoundere in Cameroon and Master in Visual Cultural Studies from teh University of Tromsø , Norway.
