GKIDS presents UNICORN WARS, the latest film from acclaimed filmmaker and illustrator Alberto Vázquez (Birdboy: The Forgotten Children). The technicolor horror-comedy recently won Spain’s Goya Award for Best Animated Feature. The film was previously featured in competition at Annecy, and was an official selection at BFI London, Animation is Film, and Fantastic Fest.

It’s “Bambi meets Apocalypse Now” in this provocative and strangely beautiful horror comedy from the auteur filmmaker, who uses its outrageous candy-colored premise to explore religious zealotry, the tortured legacies of military fascism, and the depths of the soul.

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 Aggressive, confident teddy bear Bluey and his sensitive, withdrawn brother Tubby could not be more different.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 boot camp turn to the psychedelic horrors of a combat tour in the Magic Forest, their complicated history and increasingly strained relationship will determine the fate of the entire war. Not Rated. Running time: 92 minutes
