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!

ECO DE FEMMES Six women, Zina, Cherifa, Halima, Fatima, Mina and Jamila, who live in the rural areas of Morocco and Tunisia share their dreams and their fight for emancipation through their work. They're connected by a common goal to achieve recognition for their professional identity and gender. They have created farming cooperatives where they combine their ancient knowledge with the development of new products for the local and international markets.

Carlotta Piccinini, born in Bologna on the 9th of August 1979. She's a director and visual artist. Since the beginning of her artistic career, she has been working across different areas, moving from video art and social documentary. That's how she combined her passion for Aesthetics and digital technology with her effort for the defence of human rights. To her, video art and documentary represent an area of constant experimentation, thanks to which she developed new stylistic and narrative codes and found visibility in different festivals, both national and international.

BETWEEN MEMORIES / 34 MIN

Peru, 2015, 34 min

Beetwen memories Eudosia is still searching for her husband's remains in the highlands of Ayacucho, Lucero has been in prison for 25 years now for the crime of terrorism against the Peruvian state, and since 2009 the commandos of the counterinsurgency unit Chavin de Huantar recreate and commemorate their heroic military actions to save a nation from the threat of terrorism. Twelve years after the Peruvian Truth and Reconciliation Commission published its final report about the atrocities committed during the internal armed conflict (1980-2000), memories of this period seem more contested than ever. This film explores the complex legacies of twenty years of violence and war in Peru through practices of remembering. In three audio-visual pieces made in collaboration with relatives of the disappeared, insurgents of the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement (MRTA) and members of the Armed Forces, this documentary aims for creating an on-screen dialogue between memories, which in practice remains elusive.

Martha-Cecilia Dietrich recently completed her PhD in Anthropology with Visual Media at the Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology at the University of Manchester and she is currently a post-doctoral scholar at the University of Berne. Her research interests are in the fields of political anthropology, the experience of violence, memory and its diverse articulations.

HAIGHT LOVE / 15 MIN

USA, 2015, 15 min

HAIGHT LOVE The Haight Ashbury district of San Francisco became a site of historical significance following its central role as the epicenter of the counter-cultural movement in the 1960s. In contemporary times it has transformed into a commercialized tourist attraction that draws on its unique historical context. The Haight Ashbury remains to be a popular congregational place for homeless and transient youth in the United States. The community of youth that gathers here is often at odds with other factions of housed residents and commercial vendors in the district. The Haight's identity is under constant contestation between these commonly opposed groups. The homeless and transient youth population are critiqued in a variety of ways as a result of their lifestyle. Haight Love represents this multifaceted issue and lends an opportunity for the youth themselves to discuss their experiences in order to foster a more compassionate understanding of their lives.

Grant Hayes was born and raised in the state of California in the United States. He is an aspiring Visual Anthropologist currently pursuing his Masters at San Francisco State University in California. Previously he attained his Bachelors degree in Anthropology at San Francisco State University. Grant has a strong inclination toward producing media that mediates between varied antagonistic sets of relationships among groups of people. Grant believes that the value of film in transmitting anthropological critique is its capacity to reach wider audiences and to have greater accessibility. Haight Love is the first and only film he has yet prod uced. Many more are sure to come.
