Rabbit à la Berlin
No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Bartosz Konopka
2009 / 85min / DCP
For 28 years, from the erection of the Berlin Wall to its razing in 1989, a population of wild rabbits lived and thrived, unmolested, in the strip of dreaded Death Zone that separated East Berlin from West. With this stylish, fable-like nature documentary, which has drawn comparison to the work of Werner Herzog and Chris Marker, Konopka and Rosołowski describe the growth and dispersal of this population, in the process offering an enormously original allegorical history of central Europe before and after the fall of the Communist Eastern Bloc.
