A magical hand-drawn animation that is also a profound conundrum. "If you believe in the Rabbit, you'll believe in anything. If you don't believe in the Rabbit, it means that you wouldn't believe anything."

The Great Rabbit is screening as part of our Opening Night with Fukushima 8: A Letter From Our Past, Yukuharu - The Fading of Spring, The Great Rabbit and the main feature Somi - The Taekwon-do Woman.
