RABBIT, 11min., USA
Directed by Maggie Fox Talbot-Minkin
A woman questions her marriage after finding a dying rabbit in her backyard on the night of her anniversary.
Rabbit began as a meditation on failed relationships. Often in film and media, we see romantic relationships end in great explosions of drama and betrayal-- but what about the relationships that just... end? What happens when no one is wrong, but everyone is unhappy? What do you do when you get "the ick"?
Inspired by the quiet brilliance of the Scandinavian film tradition, Rabbit seeks to answer an impossible question: is it a greater act of love to put something out of its misery, or let it die slowly?
