THE UNICORN is a feature length documentary about outsider musician Peter Grudzien, the one- man musical force behind The Unicorn, possibly the first gay country album. But country doesn’t begin to describe the dizzying range of music included on this 1974 album. Peter composed, performed and recorded The Unicorn entirely in his childhood home in Queens, NY. He sold the 500 pressed copies out of a suitcase on the streets of New York. "The Unicorn" also follows Peter as he navigates mental illness and the chaos of his family to ultimately find refuge in the creative world of music. "The Unicorn" won Best International Competition at the prestigious Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema (BAFICI) earlier, this year.
