The short film by Martin Glegg imagines a world where women and girls can ride into the distance on the backs of magic.
Perhaps it’s the times we live in, but the appeal of unicorns, fairies, magic, and adventure are all at a high. Isolation and sorrow were the motivating factors behind this space, and we would hazard a guess that those very factors have inspired more art than can be tallied.
One of those pieces is the short film by Martin Glegg, Unicorn Code. The film opens on two young women, one sporting a black eye, alone near a construction site when the unthinkable occurs: they bear witness to magic and must fight to protect it.
“A casual hangout in an abandoned lumberyard takes a turn when two outsiders, Zoe and Iona, spot a mysterious creature in the distance. As their curiosity draws them closer, an immediate bond with the animal unlocks a chain of events that challenges their inner courage.”
