Image: Still, Blind Rabbi (Pallavi 2020)
Archive/Counter-Archive is excited to partner with Reel Asian for the film THE BLIND RABBIT.
In THE BLIND RABBIT, a magical tiger stalks like a phantom. Because no one ever catches more than a glimpse, it is spoken of with the highest esteem. This allegorical fiction starts director Pallavi Paul’s attempt to describe systematic police violence in Delhi on the basis of individual events suppressed from official history. She does so in an associative edit of texts, images and sounds, making effective use of the scattered fragments of documentation still extant.
