One of the most successful Estonian movies of 2019, “Chasing Unicorns” is a semi-satirical narrative feature about a female founder trying to make it a male-dominated tech world, from Estonia to Silicon Valley. Based on real-life stories of startups, “Chasing Unicorns” follows Õie, a young book-keeper from a small town, who by accident stumbles into a tech scene of her home-country Estonia — a country where making startups is a “national sport” and where everyone has one.  He is joined by a serial failure Tõnu, who has gone bankrupt with each one of his companies but is nevertheless always trying again.  Inspired by Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg, they embark on a journey to take on the tech world. We're thrilled to screen this film in partnership with the filmmakers!
