The Itching

A Film by Dianne Bellino

A shy wolf tries to befriend a group of hip, party-loving bunnies but finds her body is in revolt.

I wanted to create a world where the emotional and psychological experience of the main character — a kind of rawness, vulnerability, and imperfection — was really visible and upfront.

I love to film things, tell stories, and read on the subway. I'm pretty sure blue whales are my power animal.
