For The Rabbits

A high school actor seeks to remove his mentally disabled sister from the audience of his senior performance when she begins shouting his name.

Director’s Statement

For the Rabbits is an incredibly personal story to me as it relates to my experiences growing up as a younger sibling of a sister with Autism. My experiences with my sister have informed much of who I am as a person. I have learned so many lessons growing up beside her- and For the Rabbits is my presentation of one which I wish I had learned much earlier. I hope that this short film may combat the tendency towards embarrassment and exclusion that so many family members of neurodivergent individuals so easily slip into. Family is Family.
