An absurdist look at masculinity through a contemporary "female gaze." Hare-Woman is on the attack with intuitive arts: painting, music, drama, and dance, but her macho adversary fights back with science and psychology to defend the supremacy of logic and the rational mind. Do new gender paradigms threaten today’s male psyche?
By Barbara Yoshida, directed by Ralph Lewis. In an absurdist take on philosophy and language, a young woman conjures three great thinkers from the past, and as she spars with them over a spirited game of Mahjong, words spin out of control until a mythological hare inspires her to confront their chauvinism and she wins the game.
