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!

Jasmina, Toplica and Claudia live in an informal settlement on the outskirts of Belgrade. Like other Roma families in the neighbouring shacks, they live in extreme poverty as a result of discrimination and exclusion. Through experience of migration and deportation to and from Germany, Jasmina lives separated from her parents and brothers.This film looks into the struggles of making a living on the margins of society. It also explores how the protagonists remember life in Western Europe and hope to go back there in the near future. Jasmina’s and Tony’s everyday life is permeated by thoughts of escaping, migrating and providing Jasmina’s daughter with a better prospect of life.

Elva Ambía Rebatta’s first language is Quechua, but when she left her town in Peru as a young woman to find work in the United States, speaking Spanish and English became critical for her to survive. While Quechua – a language indigenous to South America – continues to be spoken around the world as a result of such migration stories, UNESCO and other initiatives recognize it as an endangered language. Now in her seventies, Elva decides to help cultivate a Quechua-speaking community in New York City. Living Quechua follows Elva through the challenges and successes of trying to keep Quechua alive.
