Movie Plot:

In a lower-class London community of small shops, open-air vendors and flea-marketers, Joe, a small boy, lives with his mother, Joanne, who works in and rooms above the Kandinsky tailor shop. Joe is innocently and earnestly determined to help realize the wishes of his poor, hard-working neighbours. Hearing from Mr. Kandinsky the tale that a captured unicorn will grant any wish, Joe uses his accumulated pocket change to buy a kid with an emerging horn, believing it to be a unicorn. His subsequent efforts to make dreams come true exemplify the power of hope and will amidst hardship.

After graduating from Tokyo Fine Arts School (present-day Tokyo University of the Arts) in 1933 Hisamitsu Noguchi (1909-1994) went to work for one of Japan’s largest film distribution companies creating Japan-market movie posters for European films. Noguchi became known for his hand-drawn movie titles that matched the theme or mood of the movie. Over the course of his 30-year career, Noguchi designed over 1000 posters becoming one of the most influential graphic designers of his time. He also worked as a jazz music critic, designing graphics and taking photos related to jazz.
