Daily Dose Pick: MiniMovies


Online documentary hub MiniMovies is dedicated to exploring unfamiliar subjects through its series of short and compelling episodes.

The bite-sized highlights include Dream City, a catalog of patrons at a Northern Iraq theme park; Small Nations, Big Games, featuring a spotlight on Basque national sport Pilota; Wild Scenes, a look at Pakistan’s alternative "Lollywood" porn industry; and Ig Nobel Prizes, showcasing the alt-laurel for scientists whose research makes people "laugh and then think" — like an appetite study involving bottomless soup bowls and in-depth research on the side effects of sword swallowing.

Explore the site, watch the first and most successful MiniMovie, Molotov Alva and His Search for the Creator: A Second Life Odyssey, and browse MiniMovies producer the Submarine Channel‘s online riches.
