ETHNOKINO is an ethnographic film program curated by an association of Bern based anthropologists, taking place in one of the most atmospheric cinema in Switzerland at "Kino in der Reitschule". More than just "documenting the real" visual anthropology makes full and sometimes experimental use of the potential of film in the quest to frame and experience manifestations of life from different cultural and political vantage points.
