the rabbit hunters - by pedro costa

Three episodes of a project created by the Jeonju Film Festival to produce and distribute short films created in digital format and directed by three directors with complete creative freedom. Respite by Harun Farocki, The Rabbit Hunters by Pedro Costa and Correspondences by Eugène Green.

The Rabbit Hunters by Pedro Costa: Fontainhas is a lost community, a shanty-town on the outskirts of Lisbon. This film shows the day-by-day stories of the residents eager for the new, better life announced with its promises of warm comfort and economic growth. We see characters like Virgilio who asks himself if he really needs another refrigerator, Benvindo and Maria who break-up and Isabel who cant take it anymore.
