Porcelain Unicorn

Porcelain Unicorn

A short Holocaust film, Grand Prize Winner of the Philips "Tell It Your Way" competition.


Philips and the renowned director/producer Ridley Scott launched a global filmmaker competition called “Tell It Your Way,” following its Cannes Lions award-winning short-film project “Parallel Lines.”

The entrants were given freedom of expression and could take up any theme they wanted. But there were two strict rules: there had to be the exact six-line dialogue as it was in the Parallel Lines films, plus the entries could last no longer than three minutes.

Over 600 entries came in from around the world. Here's the prize-winning film, "Porcelain Unicorn” by American director Keegan Wilcox. The film is a sensitive and moving tale of how a traumatic wartime encounter inspires a man in later life.

The Porcelain Unicorn

What a story. I like the children and the Unicorn is a make believe animal. These children didn't live through anything make believe it happened. Great producer what a film used a make believe animal that brought two children together in something that was a nightmare to live through. Well done and great. The whole story took place in three minutes and I felt like it was a much longer and I didn't want it to end.
