This animation was done in cooperation with the Edinburgh College of Art (ECA). It was first posted on CITSEE TV.

3rd year animation students at ECA were given 2 projects led by an external client. The first was a collaboration with a research team led by Igor Stiks at Edinburgh University studying the effects of the collapse of Yugoslavia on the people’s sense of identity and citizenship. Their project is called CITSEE: Citizenship in South East Europe. Read more about it here.

Students were asked to create a series of short animated films to accompany recorded interviews which would be used as the audio track.

The film was later screened at the ECA Animation Film Show in 2014 and also screened as part of an ECA showcase at the Varna World Festival of Animated Film 2014.

Kayla Stuhr describes future collaborations with ECA:

A plan for a longer documentary collating more of the material is also underway – this development will be a collaboration between Igor, his team and myself. kayla
