17th October 2023 Písecká brána – Expedice Rembaranka 69 documentary screening + lecture in Czech (free entry)
The screening of a documentary depicting a group of Czech scientists who set on an explorative expedition to northern Australia. The documentary will be introduced by the head of the Centre of Cultural Anthropology of Moravské zemské muzeum, Petr Kostrhun.
In 1969, a group of Czech scientists led by an anthropologist and the director of the Moravian museum (in Brno), Jan Jelínek, set on an explorative expedition to northern Australia, the area populated by the Rembaranka tribe. This couple of months-long ethnologic exploration gave us a unique testimony and material evidence. After their return to Czechoslovakia, some documentaries were made, and displays were organized. After the political situation tightened up, an information embargo was introduced, and the unique film material was destroyed. Thanks to the recent discovery of new unknown film materials, the legacy of expedition Rembaranka 1969 has been revived.
This event is supported by Prague 6 City Council and culture venue Písecká brána, promoted in series Fresh Senior.
