Video: From RABBIT'S MOON (1950) Kenneth Anger - the 1979 re edit



Rabbit's Moon is a short avant-garde film directed by Kenneth Anger in the style of both mime and Kabuki theatre. The title refers to the Japanese myth about a rabbit on the moon. The story focuses on Pierrot trying to obtain the unattainable moon. Harlequin appears and entertains Pierrot with sword play, juggling, and dance. Pierrot remains distraught, so Harlequin summons Columbina to help uplift Pierrot.

Although the film was originally made in 1950, two further cuts were created, one in 1972 and another in 1979, both with different soundtracks. The longer 1972 version (which has already been posted to YouTube by others) has a soundtrack which features 1950's and 1960's pop songs, interspersed with folk chanting and sound effects. The 1979 version soundtrack to this shorter version is the song "It Came in the Night" by A Raincoat, a UK-based band led by Andy Arthur.
