The Rabbit Hunt

Editor| Producer | Writer

IN THE FLORIDA EVERGLADES, RABBIT HUNTING IS CONSIDERED A RITE OF PASSAGE FOR YOUNG MEN. THE RABBIT HUNT FOLLOWS SEVENTEEN-YEAR-OLD CHRIS AND HIS FAMILY AS THEY HUNT IN THE FIELDS OF THE LARGEST INDUSTRIAL SUGAR FARMS IN THE US. THE FILM RECORDS A TRADITION BY WHICH MIGRANT FARM WORKERS IN THE COMMUNITIES SURROUNDING LAKE OKEECHOBEE HAVE BEEN HUNTING AND PREPARING RABBITS SINCE THE EARLY 1900S.
