Hansa Studios is the one address that can tell of Germany’s 20th century pop culture. Spanning from recordings of seminal albums like David Bowie’s ‘Low’ and Iggy Pop’s ‘Lust For Life’ to domestic staples like Einstürzende Neubauten, this is the epicentre of German audio culture. The Red Bull Music Academy paid tribute to this legendary space with a three-days-long series of concerts. lectures, workshops and parties, featuring rising acoustic techno explorers Brandt Brauer Frick, Gareth Jones, a key producer from Hansa’s glorious past, and chart-topping German rapper Casper, amongst many others.
After leaving their home in Bosnia because of the Yugoslavian war in the beginning of the 90's, Abdulah Kadenic and his wife Sehaveta ended up in Norway. They lived there for 12 years, until May 2007 where Sehavata had a series of strokes. She lost the ability to speak and the ability to move most of her body so she had to be put in a nursing home. Due to not understanding the language very well and because they never really felt at home in Norway they decided to move back to Bosnia.
Abdulah now lives in Sarajevo while Sehaveta stays at a nursing home 90 kilometers from there in the city of Travnik. Every week he visits her.

A first attempt at stop-motion, and it took a full week (2,485 photos and 2 panning videos) to shoot and edit. Shot on a Canon 550D and edited using Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop and a hell of a lot of coffee!
