Pety is a girl with a majestic sense of control of everything around her. One day, walking to school, she believed that has received a warning from the angel Gabriel forsaking the death of her pet named Bunny, a rabbit. The fear of looseness and the desire to control everything lead her to the olimpic attempt to somehow dismiss the prophesied destiny.
About the film:
I wanted to create a diverse and idiosyncratic character, valuing in a child their socially accepted traits of character but also point the typical perversities of childhood. Imaginary fears, unconscious cruelty. The central theme of the story is one of ontological aspirations of human beings: omnipotence, which in childhood is the space of its primitive psychic elaboration. With this short film I meant to work in the record of subtlety, the delicacy and concentration in the experiences, producing life and reality in harmony with unreal and metaphysical elements, because as the Brazilian writer João Guimarães Rosa said: “Everything, moreover, is the tip of a mystery, even the facts. Or lack of them. Doubt? When nothing happens there's a miracle that we're not seeing” - in “Grande Sertão Veredas”. (ANAHÍ BORGES)
