It focuses on the ideas and stories of Artesanos – people who live a nomadic lifestyle, travel around Latin America and produce their own jewellery in order to fund their lives. It questions the reasons for choosing this way of life, the significance of travelling and represents their invisibility and intangibility while moving. It is a mix of Super 8, Photographs and sound.

What should antropological films be like? How to come to terms with alternating view of the world and with stereotypes in us? In a 3-year span, this issue kept busy an execution team around Milan Durňak who went back to his home-village to capture life of Roma people together with their Ruthenian neighbours. Every stay in the Roma colony brought one episode of a film which captures everyday life, tries to describe problems which trouble them and constantly strive to jump over their own shadows. The spectator has a chance to encounter a story in a social-cummunity centre with a hard-working mayor and festivals in the village and think about the worries and merriments of one Roma colony.
Milan Durňak graduated at Charles Univerity in Prague, main field ethnology. Currently he is working at the University as a Phd student. In his studies, he mainly deals with visual anthropology and creation of antropological films.

The square formerly known as Moszkva tér (Moscow Square) in Budapest is the setting for this short film. Through the documentation of people’s voices and activities, this film underlines how the city’s busiest transport hub is also a space that Budapest’s most profoundly marginalised groups rely on for their livelihood and survival.
