In a world where petty opinions, hysteria, commotion and emotion have become the norm and neo-liberal humanity is rapidly losing sight of the path to happiness, The Rabbit And The Teasel is a breath of fresh air. Fiction and autobiographical elements mingle in a lyrical tale that drags the viewer into a universe of beauty, death, and decay. Author and director Els Dietvorst zooms in on the raw reality of a rainy year that drives the farmer to despair. In a timeless setting on the Irish countryside, a contemporary parable unfolds, as enchanting as it is confronting.
