8 is an award-winning short film by Serbian director Aćim Vasić, centered around two soliders in a setting resembling something like a Siberian forest. One is a downed pilot, the other a soldier from the opposing side who takes the stricken pilot captive. The story follows the two men in what ultimately becomes a game of wits, and a guessing game for the audience. Although the subject matter appears anything but light-hearted, and the film certainly has a brutal gravity to it, it isn’t without humour. Produced by Swiss production company Turbulence Films, 8 won best short at the 2010 Monfilmfest in Italy, and has screened at many film festivals and received many nominations.
