Storyline

During the conflict in the former Yugoslavia many soldiers were convinced to kill fellow citizens including friends and relatives in the name of patriotism. The Kolaborator follows the story of Goran, 24, a promising young soccer player who is forced to become a soldier. Goran goes from being a talented athlete to an executioner virtually overnight. Following orders, Goran lines up civilians, shoots them and drags them into mass graves. Justifying his role as a protector of his people, Goran becomes increasingly detached from the task until his soccer coach and life-long friend, Asim, is led in front of him. As a familiar face stands defeated before him, Goran must reconsider his actions and choose between his own life and that of his dear friend. Written by Anonymous

Powerful Short about war and morality
19 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an incredibly powerful short about genocide during the Yugoslavian civil war and the ethical choice one soldier must make. As a previous reviewer has written, the soldier (Goran) was a promising soccer player, which we learn in the first few minutes of the film. The scene quickly breaks to Goran in military attire playing soccer, when the ball rolls into a pit of dead civilians. We quickly learn that this was not an accidental discovery, but rather this group of men are serving as executioners to their fellow countrymen. A truckload of more civilians arrive, and Goran meets a man from his past and is ordered to execute him.

He has already seen one of his fellow soldiers killed by their commanding officer for refusing to continue to commit the atrocities. Goran's choice is murder his friend,or be executed himself for refusing to follow orders. Which will he choose?
