Anthropological film ventures into people´s everyday lives, with the intention of creating cross-cultural understanding between human beings.

It reflects on aspects of human daily life with cultural, artistic, anthropological and philosophical value. It is a sensorial experience, a visceral way of grasping the world. It is a way of democratising knowledge, as it allows viewers to access corners of the world and walks of life they otherwise might not be able to experience.

As visual anthropologists we immerse into the lives of others, observing by participating and documenting with respect, gratitude and compassion. Anthropological film reaches your mind and heart, and strives for opening both.
