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!

Archipelago Archipelago is a journey through ancient myths, exorcism rituals, sounds and spirits. In the south of Iran, on a group of islands of the Persian Gulf, humans and spirits coexist since centuries. The culture and traditions of these Islands are the result of the encounters between the African Diaspora, the Arab Countries and Iran, generating a unique system of syncretic beliefs. Spirits of different heritages and origins, called Bād, the Persian word for wind, moving through the air, take possession of the islanders bodies and can only be quieted through a music ceremony called the Zār Ritual. Thanks to an unprecedented access given to foreign film makers, the Film showcases stories and landscape s of the islanders daily life within the frame of the Rituals, giving, through pounding drum rhythms and wailing vocal chorus, a rare and unexpected glimpse of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Camilla Insom, anthropologist lives and works Sulaimaniyah, Iraqi Kurdistan. After completing the MA in Cultural Anthropology at the University of Rome Sapienza, she's currently a Phd candidate in Iranian Studies at University of Naples "L'Orientale".She is in charge of the Anthropological Studies of "Sapienza" University of Rome. Giulio Squillacciotti is Artist, Filmmaker and researcher lives and works in Milan and Maastricht. He studied Medieval Art History in Barcelona and Rome. He owns a MA in Visual Arts from the University of Architecture in Venice IUAV, where he studied Art, Philosophy, Semiotics and Anthropology. His work is mainly oriented on storytelling, cultural apexes and the way traditions re- shape in new contexts.

BE' JAM BE THE NEVER ENDING SONG

Francie, Švýcarsko, Malajsie, 2018, 85 min

BE' JAM BE the never ending song In Sarawak (Borneo), "the ones who live upstream" are the first affected by deforestation. The Penan, (ex) nomadic hunters, are caught in the eye of that storm : how to go on living when one's entire world is being taken apart, when the landscape, which brought meaning to existence, literally disappears and with it language, customs and the spirits? The film, carried by the song of those who refuse to give in, draws the lines of resistance of each one to that deadly fight. It tells of the intimate interweaving of a sweet and secret way of life with the fight which rages in the shadow of the big trees.

Caroline Parietti and Cyprien Ponson met during a master's degree in documentary writing (CREADOC/France), after personal journeys in anthropology and community social work. Their work explores issues of memory, violence and resistance in the margins. Cyprien earned a bachelor's degree in anthropology at Lyon 2, and Caroline a first year of ethnology in Neuchâtel (Switzerland) before her studies of community social work during which she started to use camera as an emancipation tool.
