ENCORE SERIES: I BELIEVE IN UNICORNS
First show: January 03
I BELIVE IN UNICORNS is part of our ENCORE series, a program designed to highlight some of the best films from 2015 that received little (or no) theatrical distribution in San Francisco.
“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.
