Seattle premiere!

Special introduction by "When Herons Dream" director Serge Gregory at Friday, 7pm show

This Oscar nominated short is a tall-but-true tale from a rabbit's point of view. The no man’s land that was once the eastern side of the Berlin Wall is now the skyscraper center of Berlin. For 28 years, the strip of earth enclosed between the two walls was the safest of enclaves for rabbits. Full of grass, no predators, guards to ensure that no one disturbed them. But sadly, one day, the wall fell… The rabbits’ fate serves as a guise for an allegorical tale of a totalitarian system.  

"SW Pick: A lovely modern mini-myth, sarcastic and Beatrix Potter-y in turn."  —Seattle Weekly
