8 (2010) - Soldiers Outwitting Each Other In A Game of Cat and Mouse

8 (2010) - In the depths of a snowy forest in an unknown wartime, two soldiers from opposing armies try to outwit each other in a perilous game of cat and mouse - until they find themselves outplayed by destiny.

"8" is visually great short film with amazing location, costumes and some unexpectedly beautiful shots. There's no dialogue and it tries to be ambiguous by taking place In an unnamed setting and time frame because the uniforms and aircraft with turbo prop engines suggest it's the Second World War , but that said it's near impossible to visualise on screen a generic war that is timeless and could be taking anywhere or at anytime. It won Best Short Film Award at the 8th edition of "Monfilmfest Giochi di Cinema de Casalborgone". This is essentially the plot of Bosnian director Danish Tanovic's Academy Award winning film No Man's Land (2001).

Directed by Acim Vasic. Starring: Nicky Naudé, Guillaume Tavi
