"Crystal Bear" for "Rabbitland" at Berlinale 2013

"Rabbitland" by authors Ana Nedeljkovic and Nikola Majdak jr, won the "Crystal Bear," at this year's Berlinale for the best short film in the programe "Generation 14plus".

In this program, members of the jury were the same generation as the audience. Eleven children and seven teenagers rewared the best films with "Crystal Bear".

The jury awarded the film because “film conveyed a thought-provoking theme to us combined with ironic merit and dark humor. Simply and effectively, it critiques the political structures we live under and makes us feel slightly uncomfortable about our everyday lives. The film is of worldwide relevance and was presented to us in a highly skilled and original fashion.”

Brainless Rabbits live in Rabittland, a perfect world ordered according to the most successful examples of war zones, ghettos and slums. They are intensively pink, have holes in their heads instead of brains, and they are happy regardless of what happens to them. They are the highest stage the evolution has ever reached. Their everyday life is completely fulfilled. The Rabbits spend days voting on free and democratic elections, which take place in Rabbitland once a day, because Rabbitland is an ordered democracy. Nevertheless, it gets disclosed that the elections are organized by the Evil Girls, just for their fun and laughter.

"Rabbitland" was done in co-production between "Film house Baš čelik" and "Arhitel", and was supported by the Film center Serbia and Belgrade Secretariat for Culture.
