Antropofest 2018Zatopené (Flooded) is an anthropological documentary film about a building and the fates connected to it. The mansion in Parizovce was a family residence, home, property, center of a farmstead and eventually a historical monument. Some parts of the building have been preserved and have endured through centuries, others have been flooded by the waters of the Liptovska Mara waterworks. For the descendants of the Stein family, its last owners, the mansion is a memory of a lost past. For museum curators it's a gem, a phoenix risen from the muddy waters, the pride of the Liptov region. An unusual story of the mansion from Parizovce and its last owners, that is also a reflection of the social changes in 20th century Slovakia.

Antropofest 2018Unity: Dress-scapes of Accra is an ethnographic film about African fashion in the capital of Ghana. The comeback of African print seems to be emerging in the fashion system of Accra. While following Allan, a fashion designer and his wife Cynthia, this mosaic film shows the great diversity of tailor-made fashion and hybrid styles; the ways the African wear is used and the expression of culture by wearing the African prints. The film highlights beautiful details by focusing on a few participants who show the mixture of different materials, cuts and styles in a creative and free atmosphere. In this way the film is not only observational, it gives people space to tell their story and show they are proud of the African wear. 

Mara Lin Visser is a visual anthropologist and filmmaker based in Amsterdam. She discovered filmmaking during the production of documentary on material culture in Volendam for her MA Visual Anthropology. The medium of film gives her the freedom to express herself, her thoughts about certain topics and academic observations in a natural way. For her film is the perfect way to explore the broad subject of material culture. With this in mind she decided to do her fieldwork in Ghana, which resulted in the film 'Unity: Dress-scapes of Accra'. She is interested in queer rights, participation society, material culture, fashion, geopolitics and art.

Antropofest 2017The mass is a distillation of human evolution, a parable about the treatment of substance, an image of the control over bodies that are hanged on the world’s tissue, or else disgorged from the ocean mass onto dry land, which is interwoven with bodies and the movement of hunters, gatherers, and vagabonds. Our observation of the various forms of abstracted masses, which we become part of at the same time, creates a platform of eternal presence – an active void if you will, which revolves in a closed circle, as though it had neither beginning nor end. What is left is just the stark presence of the traces of bared lives.
