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!

One of the possible ways of presenting the work of anthropologists and ethnologists, through which they are trying to understand the world arounds us, comes by means of ethnographic film. Similar efforts are also typical for film documentarists who can often uncover features of today´s society and spread them to the public. Both sides are linked together by the constant reflexion of own efforts coming out from its marginal position – searching for their own creative identity. Together with guests of the debate we will attempt to look closer at the specifics and background of visual anthropology and documentary, voice the possible common sources of inspiration and consider the possibilities and forms of cooperation.

Guests: Jaroslava Panáková, Ivo Bystřičan
The event is hosted by Michal Pavlásek (Antropictures)

Diskussion will be in Czech, without translation.

Antropofest 2017 In the Municipality of Yahualica, Hidalgo, a Nahua community from Mexico, the archaeological pieces (named stone gods in their language) have the ability to make the population sick. Through an accurate knowledge the inhabitants of the municipality manage to deal with the power of the 'stone gods' in order to prevent possible damages and to benefit from the relationship with them. This facet of their reality has been seriously criticised by the Mexican media and the community has been deprived of a large part of their material heritage. This documentary pictures the life of the Nahuas from Yahualica, who have to coexist with the world of the stones, who make them sick, and with the world of the mestizos, who ridicule and rob them.

Jaime Bernardo Díaz is an anthropologist; Ana Somohano Eres and Antonio Jaramillo Arango are both historians. The three of them studying their PhDs at the UNAM, México, where they research about the social life objects can have in native communities dating before and after the Conquest.
