The long-known story of Hare and Tortoise takes place in a totally new setting, namely documenta 11. Refering to Joseph Beuys’ campain, in which he explains pictures of an exibition to a dead bunny, the rabbit of our movie comes back to life and bounces from the 2D-animated world into the reality of documenta 11. Thus the race runs its course and the viewer undergoes documenta from a rabbit’s point-of-view – in a speed, which the competition with the hedgehog brings along.

The movie comes along without dialogues and further sound, so the music stands alone and is to the fore, whereby – and because of the style - the movie gets a clip-like charackter. The score picks up the tempo of the race and tells the story by Big_Beats and electronic sounds. This style works in particuar context very well, to carry the energy and dynamic of the movie and makes it furthermore possible to sidestep now and then.
