SEED: PARADISE LOST, 9min., USA
Directed by Rob Skiba
In 1942, the three man crew of a TBF Avenger is attacked by two Japanese Zeroes as they fly over the Solomon Islands on a Top Secret survey mission. The plane crash lands in a shallow river. Lieutenant Caine, the pilot and only surviving member of the crew then gets attacked by three Japanese ground troops. As he attempts to defend himself, a giant creature emerges from the jungle and takes out two of his opponents. Now out of ammo, Lieutenant Caine and the remaining Japanese soldier prepare to engage in close quarter combat. But they both realize enough blood has already been shed. Their friends were gone. Paradise was lost. And perhaps... they weren't the real enemy after all.
