MOVIES

NOBEL NOK DAH

USA, 2015, 23 min
E. Hong, M.Lai, M.Mihai
27.01.2017 20:00

Antropofest 2017 Nobel Nok Dah offers an intimate view into the lives of three refugee women from Burma, whose migratory paths cross in Thailand and eventually meet when they resettle to central New York. Drawing upon methods of feminist oral history and ethno-fiction, the film traces glimmers of subjectivity that complicate any singular narrative of the refugee experience. As camera movements follow the textures of everyday life and work, a weave of sensorial fragments immerse audiences in women's narratives of self, place, and belonging.

Emily Hong is a Seoul-born and New York-raised feminist anthropologist and filmmaker. A graduate of Columbia University and PhD Candidate at Cornell University, Emily’s research and professional expertise lies at the intersection of legal anthropology, media practice, and economic, social, and cultural rights. Emily has directed several collaborative films including Get By (2014), For My Art (2016), and Nobel Nok Dah (2015), which have explored issues of solidarity and labor, the gendered spectatorship of performance art, and questions of womanhood and identity in the refugee experience.
Miasarah Lai is a Puerto-Rican-Chinese-American director and cinematographer from the Lower East Side, New York City. As an MFA Candidate in Documentary Media at Northwestern University, she explores the physicality and performative role of the documentary cinematographer in the dance between the subject and its storytellers. Miasarah’sHer international body of work has included cinematography and directing for projects in Romania, Ghana, Myanmar, and China.
Mariangela Mihai, a Romanian Anthropology and Film PhD Candidate at Cornell University, has worked on issues of refugee political resettlement at the Emory Center for Ethics and the International Rescue Committee. Her current research looks at overlapping nationalisms, identity and ethnicity on the India-Burma border. Select film projects include: To Uphold the Law (2014), a film exploring ideologies of nationalism and anti-drone activism in Upstate N.Y.; and For My Art (2016), a twochannel video installation exploring the sensorial landscape of transition-era Burma/Myanmar through the figure of the performance artist.

MASA

Česká republika, 2017, 32 min
M. Pavlásek, I. Bystřičan
27.01.2017 19:05

Antropofest 2017 The 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.
