If you read the title of this documentary backwards, you get the word Konijn (rabbit). And that is what this short film is about. It describes the life of cute white rabbits on a rabbit farm. The spectator gets the feeling that he is watching a conveyor belt. Collecting the sperm, inseminating, feeding, cleaning the hutches, birth; everything seems like a repetitive routine operation. And it has an extra alienating effect owing to the structure the filmmakers apply. Nothing is said in the documentary; the images tell the bleak, unpleasant and depressing tale.
