Call Me Rabbit is a short narrative film featuring a conversation between two women who must spend one year living in a desert commune because they forgot to unsubscribe from an e-mail list. As the women wait to be let in, they discuss the anxiety and pressure they feel in their everyday lives to formulate an identity, and admit that they feel a sense of relief at the prospect of being consumed by an authority.
The film was installed as part of a solo exhibition at Los Angeles gallery Actual Size from December 2018 - January 2019, and was screened at the Brooklyn video art series Cinema Cobra in January 2019.
