In the short film Project Skyborn, a man wakes on a snowy planet with a gun and a voice in his ear telling him he will run out of oxygen—unless he can kill the person who is trying to kill him. But who is he really fighting? And what is the prize if he manages to survive?

Marko Slavnic directed Project Skyborn, which at first seems like a typical game of survival, but which ultimately invites questions about the nature of this deadly competition and the use of memory as a motivator. It's a short that once feels complete and leaves us with some intriguing mysteries.
