"Rabbits" was my last directing exercise at Columbia University in New York. During the time of shooting I found out that there was no way for me to stay in the US due to financial issues. (Fortunately I later managed to return for one semester to finish my degree. But this is a different story...)
I decided that my last exercise should reflect my melancholy and sadness and started writing a few scenes. Norwegian director Pernille Rivedal Hellevik plays my... well... female and Skandinavian alter ego in this short which was shot on just a consumer camera on one Spring day in Manhattan.
