“The performances are strong, the imaginary visions are suggestive and fleeting, and the film as a whole is swoony, tender, skittish, a little scary — in short, this is what young love feels like.” -Alan Scherstuhl, The Village Voice

A Skype Q&A with the director Leah Meyerhoff, along with sound mixer Joe Stillwater, will follow the screening on Sunday, January 3rd.


Davina is an imaginative and strong-willed teenage girl who often escapes into a beautifully twisted fantasy life. Having grown up quickly as the sole caretaker of her disabled mother, she looks for salvation in a new relationship with an older boy. Davina is swept into a whirlwind of romance and adventure, but the enchantment of her new relationship quickly fades when his volatile side begins to emerge. I Believe in Unicorns takes us on a road trip through the stunning and complex landscape of troubled young love. Official selection: SXSW Film Festival

Directed by Leah Meyerhoff, 80min, 2014, USA.
