Humidity is a co-production between the Serbian production company Dart Film, Lemming Film, the Greek 2|35 and the Serbian Cinnamon Production. The film has been supported by the Netherlands Film Fund, Hubert Bals Fund, Film Center Serbia and Eurimages.
INVITE ME TO WAR is the second feature film of director Shariff Korver (INFILTRANT, PENOZA, ZWARTE TULP) and is written by Jolein Laarman (KAUWBOY, BROZER). The project has been selected for the Berlinale Co-Production Market out of 301 submissions. INVITE ME TO WAR tells the story of two enthusiastic soldiers that go on a mission in Afghanistan. The military camp life, the cultural differences and sometimes grim war situations begin to take its toll, leading to an irreversible deed.
