Individual and collective memory are the main topics of Hasanović’s work, made manifest in videos and photography to performance art, drawings and installations.The film A short story explores the recording of a story, or rather, its interpretation based on oral testimony. By way of a lyrical introduction, a landscape shot is accompanied by sounds of nature, which are then intensified to a point where they become indistinguishable, and even begin to resemble the threatening sounds of war. After a moment of deafening silence, the narrator begins a tale which, as we learn at the beginning, has been told from one generation to another.
