Director's Notes: "The Bardo--where the dead await rebirth as a human, as a god, as a demon, as a ghost, a denizen of hell, or as an animal. According to classic teaching, the Bardo is pure subjectivity, pure mind, and therefore, as much as we would like to represent it traditionally with its "mother luminosity", its "clear light". Its four phases of dharmata. "Rainbow essences". Its peaceful and wrathful deities, etc. etc., we realize that subjectivity for a contemporary dog and rabbit marches to a different program and worships a different iconography. In this realm of spiritual space Rose meets Bunny....the soul of a rabbit...and her long lost earthly friend."
