The Green Rabbit And The Ice Cream Girl – LA screening and Q & A

“A man is stumbling through the desert, in only underwear, lost and confused. A car pulls alongside, driven by a beautiful young girl who knows his name. His name is Gerry and it’s tattooed on his forehead. Her name is Eilis, from a pendant around her neck. With nowhere else to go, he gets into the car and begins a surreal journey to answer the reasons he’s there at all.” – Source IMDB

Written and directed by Eoin C Macken, starring Ryan Simpkins, Emmett J Scanlan and Ryan Potesta. The 18 Min short was filmed in the Nevada desert in August 2015.
