SHORT JOY // A conceptual film, balancing between a documentary and science fiction, explores environmental devastation in Iowa, USA that remains largely overlooked. Through microscopic images of plants, footage from university greenhouses, karst sinkholes with primary flora and fauna, or a dilapidated granary, the director conjures up a dystopic vision, radically restructuring relationships between man, nature and technology.
“The film imagines a future in which the changing climate and environmental conditions are recast as an active resistance to nature’s own devastation. … Plants, earth’s first communicators, are now its last. Humanity is but a blip.” E. Drummer
