In the latest documentary short from Indie Grits alum Patrick Bresnan and Ivete Lucas, seventeen-year-old Chris and his family hunt rabbits in the sugarcane fields of one of the largest industrial sugar farms in the US. Documenting what is now considered a rite of passage for young men in the Florida Everglades, this graphic tradition began in the area’s migrant communities populated in the early 1900s. The Rabbit Hunt was a selection at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and the Berlin International Film Festival.
