Trailer for Rabbit Woman.
Ana, a Chinese-Argentine bureaucrat living in Buenos Aires, is pressured to approve a permit for an unsafe building. With the help of her occasional boyfriend, she gathers evidence to expose a cover-up linked to corruption fostered by the Chinese mafia. She soon becomes a target and has to flee the city. But out in the country the terrain is overrun with a strain of mutant, carnivorous rabbits, with an ominous connection to the gangsters Ana is running away from.
Award-winning director Ver nica Chen ('Smokers Only', 'Agua') boldly mixes animated sequences with live action, bringing an element of magical realism to this taut thriller. She gives her film a vivid sense of place, casting light onto the rarely seen Chinese subculture in Buenos Aires, and deftly weaves in a subplot about human trafficking. Newcomer Haien Qiu turns in a forceful, layered performance as Ana, a beautiful but tough civil servant who s disconnected from her heritage and paralyzed by ambivalence in her romantic relationship.
