"I love that it's done under the cover of dark while people are sleeping and they wake up to a space transformed. The Guerilla Bunny is navigating darkness and secret and laying beautiful ambushes for this community."
very Easter, since 2008, in Berkshire County, MA., an anonymous person (the Guerilla Bunny) hides exquisitely hand painted eggs for the community to find. Each hand blown egg takes between 2 and 10 hours to paint, using the thinnest brush available.
The Guerilla Bunny hides them in the very early hours of Easter morning.
This film has a dual focus; the need for the artist to create and what it means to the artist and what the art means to those who discover it.
The film is being submitted to film festivals currently, but will be available for public viewing soon.
