Betty’s Story

Animated short film by Flaka Kokolli

Through our work we happen upon extraordinary storytellers. With each retelling of the past, our narrators write and rewrite their lives. When women talk about war they humanize those experiences and war becomes a sequence of ordinary life. 

In wanting to capture this, Oral History Initiative has been recording and collecting stories that revisit the 1999 war. Recently, we started a collaboration with Flaka Kokolli, animation artist, who will use women’s storytelling to produce a short animated film.
