Hey folks! Look at this fun film “For the Love of Unicorns” being produced by my friend Alice Y. Hom and her colleague Erin O’Brien about believing in believing, unicorns and utopia. Check out their kickstarter page here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fortheloveofunicorns/for-the-love-of-unicorns and if you’re in LA then see if you can help out with your skills: http://www.fortheloveofunicorns.com/donations.html I’ll be joining them this Sunday and next to make felted unicorns!
If you can’t contribute financially, then just forward the story/project on your social media outlets :) Support queer Asians making art!
About the film:
I want to make a film about hope and optimism in the face of the disappointment of reality and the “real world.” I want to make a film that has people who look like me, mixed race, queer, Asian American. I want to make a queer film that isn’t about “coming out” or first kiss or first love. We’ve seen those stories. I want to make a film that features mixed race, Asian American, queer and gender queer people in a fun, light story and think about what’s on the horizon.
This experimental narrative and animated short film is about a young, mixed race girl, Kylan, who loves unicorns – just like us. Kylan goes to the carnival, which claims to have a real live unicorn. At the heart, this is a film about community and utopia – a utopia for queer, mixed race, Asian American, people of color, gender non-conforming people. Kylan represents the hope that when we speak out and organize, one day we can live in a utopian world where even though everyone’s unicorn may look different, they can all dance together under a glittery rainbow.
