Re-opening ceremony of the 125 years old City Hall

from KNAP Design & Animation Studio

Extremely challenging, artistically and technically, but also morally, within only several minutes, this video depicts very specific and very powerful historical breakdowns that happened in Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina, pointing to the abundant and versatile cultural and historical heritage, encompassing the period from before the construction of the City Hall until today. This video mapping illustrates the birth of progressive ideas and their everlasting struggles against the powers of darkness. These positive ideas are symbolized by the ray of light that is pushed back from time to time, only to reappear and dominate again, that never disappears, and always and again finds its way back. Sarajevo City Hall 3D video mapping is a result of the cooperation between the Knap Studio and the Sarajevo City Administration, at the official reopening ceremony of the City Hall, reconstructed after having been burned in 1992.

 

Short musical excerpts taken from: Valter brani Sarajevo (1972, Bosna Film) , Indexi “Sanjam” (1972, Jugoton), Lijepo je bilo u Sarajevu, Dovidjena u Kalgariju (1984, Diskoton).
