We were commissioned by Ecumenical Women's Initiative to create two animated stories about positive and significant changes their grants helped achieve. The first is about peace and reconciliation - Jelena, a Bosnian Serb woman living in Visegrad - hears the side of bosniaks about the war. 
From the definition of the colours, to the design, to the voices and music, we’ve done a lot of reseach and got feedback from locals to stay true to the story and context.

Both animations are based in real statements written by Jelena and Amina in Bosnian and modified slightly to adapt to the animation format.

While we had to translate the stories to English for the international viewers and inevitably some words lost its effectiveness in the translation, some sentences were left unchanged in the Bosnian version, so they are an even truer representation of the stories.
