Kuramochi Yuka plays an enquiring girl who is harshly bullied at school. Is that why she cuts open frogs, experiments with her mother’s goldfish and even administers thallium to her mother? 'You’ve got it wrong!' she argues. 'It all has to do with control.' The girl also protests when the director, who bases his film on a notorious case from 2005, states that he will experiment by moving the story to 2011. 'There isn’t a story at all!'
GFP Bunny, named after genetically modified fluorescent rabbits, is a kaleidoscopic mix of fiction, documentary, diary notes and internet videos. The filmmaker and his protagonist wonder what biotechnology, cosmetic surgery, surveillance, avatars, extreme piercings and new religion can mean to us. A meeting with a body artist is the prelude to an unexpected and proud finale for the girl.
Best film in the Japanese Eyes section of the Tokyo International Film Festival.
