Unicorn Wars

Alberto Vazquez’s Unicorn Wars Opens This Friday

Have this article read to you, listen to it like a podcast

From acclaimed filmmaker and illustrator Alberto Vazquez, Unicorn Wars is a provocative and strangely beautiful horror comedy that juxtaposes childlike fantasy with gruesome ideology.

For ages, teddy bears have been locked in an ancestral war against their sworn enemy, the unicorns, with the promise that victory will complete the prophecy and usher in a new era. Aggressive, confident teddy bear Bluey and his sensitive, withdrawn brother Tubby could not be more different. As the rigors and humiliation of teddy bear bootcamp turn to the psychedelic horrors of a combat tour in the Magic Forest, their complicated history and increasingly strained relationship will come to determine the fate of the entire war.

Unicorn Wars uses its outrageous candy-colored premise to explore religious zealotry, the tortured legacies of military fascism, and the depths of the soul.

Unicorn Wars screens starting Friday, March 10th.
