Commodity City
The Yiwu wholesale market in China is more than eight kilometres long. Short episodes follow buyers and the uncompromising negotiations between vendors. The observational documentary shows stalls so covered in goods they completely hide the vendors – and thus also the market’s other world, where their offspring spend their childhoods.

Exit Point
An intimate look at the world of a man who lives his passion through the sense of freedom that he experiences when jumping off mountaintops or the highest buildings in the world – and when running away from prying eyes or seeking an escape route between the buildings. However, succumbing to the taste of adrenaline comes with many risks, some of them fatal.Moments of inexorable falling. "Fucking" joy that the parachute opened. Flying past waterfalls, approaching a lake, hitting the hard asphalt during nighttime jumps. Images filled with vertigo.

The Creation As We Saw It
Three mythical stories as told by the inhabitants of the Melanesian island state of Vanuatu in the Pacific Ocean, set against a backdrop of black-and-white footage of the place of the stories' origin. They reveal the mysteries behind the creation of man and woman, the reasons why pigs walk on all fours, and how volcanoes were made. A domesticated wild pig rests on the ground. Nearby, laundry is drying on a woven mat. Children look curiously and distrustfully into the camera. The pig lets itself be nuzzled and grunts contentedly.

Last Portrait
A fog-shrouded journey to the other shore. An epilogue to the life of an anonymous man setting out for his last journey down the river of life. The commentary consists of silence and of shots of oars in the water. This atmospheric spectacle of the preparations for an Indian funeral attempts to create a final portrait of one person and his family during their final farewell.

For Men Go By
Over the past fifty years, the Mange-Garri chemical plant has drained more than 30 million tons of toxic sludge into the Mediterranean Sea while producing aluminum oxide. The surrounding area has quickly become a major dump, now covered in dark red ooze. The film draws attention to the unstoppable process of human self-destruction through a series of carefully selected shots of the industrial environment and the eyewitness reports of local residents.     “Our project is different from an investigation or a documentary in the strict sense, staying both closer to and further away from its subject. Closer since it is based on the lived part of the story, which comes from the photos and accounts of the residents. Further away to the extent that the places marked by environmental aberrations are symptoms, pathological mirrors of our acts on a large scale.” A. Piqueras, T. Verneret     Watch Short Joy films for free on DAFilms now and decide who will win the Audience Award. Voting ends on 29 October.

Cod Liver Oil and Cream Caramels
We enter a dilapidated boarding school through an open, broken window. Blotches on the pure snowy landscape. Visually refined footage of decay is accompanied by the reminiscences of the now-adult children who came here as seven-year-olds. Some of them would prefer to forget what others see as the best years of their lives. Children who cannot be seen. The giggling of children’s voices carries through the run-down rooms. A boy and a girl. They exchange new words. Someone is coming, but does not enter. The door opens on its own. Behind the building shimmer the Northern Lights.

Missing Parts
A film that shows the importance of having the full picture. Through unusual camera framing, we see only certain parts of various objects, and are thus forced to complete the picture using our fantasy. Slices of everyday Palestinian life offer the viewer a diff erent point of view.

Summer
Juan Medina’s photograph from 2006 shows a man crawling along a Mediterranean beach shortly after being washed ashore. The film further develops the scene, loosely inspired by the moment captured in the picture. Like frozen puppets, the people remain unaware of their callousness towards someone who is taking his first steps towards a better life.

Blue sky from pain
This film gives one of the many refugees who were unjustly imprisoned in detention centers located close to European borders a chance to tell his story. His horrifying experience is reflected in the static, well-composed, deep focus shots, which reveal traces of lingering suffering in the abandoned buildings.
