A selection of 1950s educational stickers, found
in a provincial junkshop twenty years ago, provide
the ingredients for this adult fairytale. When a boy
and girl find an idol in the stomach of a rabbit, its
magical abilities lead to riches, but for how long?
rabbit tells a tale of lost innocence, greed and the
random justice of nature.
"The skies were all shot out of the back
window of my house. They were
all shot early in the evening and then
reversed to give the illusion of
a sunset rather than a sunrise."
"The idol was really the catalyst for the
whole story, I knew I wanted
to make a simple morality tale about
greed and once I focused in on him,
I then decided he would have the power
to transform objects."
