It's a scene in a Chinese restaurant, where a bunch of friends are eating, having a spirited discussion of the differences between Chinese-Canadians born in Canada and those born in China. It's an interesting conversation that is interrupted.
Interrupted by a man in a bunny suit.
That's the basic structure, and of course, things go in unexpected ways from there. The reaction to the bunny man in many ways mirrors not only the conversation the group was engaged in, but the basic idea of the Other, of Our Space vs. Shared Space vs. Their Space. There is a sense of violation, and at the same time, of hyper-protectionism. There is an understood unease about interacting with someone so thoroughly out of one's regular interaction space, and at the same time, there is a sense of unreality to it.
Bunny Man is one of those films where you see the path, know how you would handle the scenario and are looking to the characters to see if they do what you would do, or what you are afraid someone in that situation will do. It's a challenge, you see. The bunny man in the restaurant is a challenge, and Bunny Man is a challenge. How do you see the film, and why is it that way?
Bunny Man plays as a part of Shorts Program 9 - Hidden. https://payments.cinequest.org/websales/pages/info.aspx?evtinfo=85262~78899376-35a9-4153-8303-e1557be2dc32&epguid=d52499c1-3164-429f-b057-384dd7ec4b23&#.XFxFTFVKhdh
