Rabbit Fever is a well-crafted intense peek into the secret world of rabbit shows -- up close and personal -- from the perspective of the competitors. It is also a coming of age story about six teens pursuing their goals. Shot over five years, Rabbit Fever ultimately captures the heart of competition and quite a few cute rabbits in the process.
Truly California is the perfect forum for Rabbit Fever, which is part of the 2013 season showcasing documentaries made by independent filmmakers who explore the unique people living in the nooks and crannies of our state. Other documentaries in the series include Witch Hunt, about Kern County District Attorney Ed Jagels; Stable Life, about the Mexican immigrant grooms at Bay Meadows before its closure; Last Fast Ride: The Life, Love and Death of a Punk Goddess, documenting the life and death of the lead singer of The Insaints, Marian Anderson ; and Lovely Day, which follows Oakland High School's Fifth Element Hip-Hop Club.
Rabbit Fever, which began as a film class project, has blossomed into a compelling full-length film gaining popularity with each screening and its recent DVD release in January. Luckily for those of us who appreciate a good documentary at home, TV is the next logical step for Amy Do.
