Besa Besarta
Project info

Through various paths and detours we meet for the first time in Hamburg. Besa and Besarta, twin sisters, are to be married in six months. Over the course of a year’s time, I accompany them as they prepare for their wedding in Hamburg during the winter of 2010, through spring for a civil ceremony for Besa in Ferizaj and a three-day wedding party for Besa and also Besarta in Kosovo, into late fall with their return to daily life in Hamburg. Besa is an abbreviation of Besarta. Besarta means “Golden Word of Honour.”
