ROCKS IN MY POCKETS

DVD, Latvia, Latvijas Filma, Selection, , ,

A crazy quest for sanity. The personal story of a woman struggling with an inherited illness, as told by Signe Baumane, the Latvian director-animator living in New York City. With humour and courage, the director sets out on a challenging journey to discover her family’s best-kept secret. Featuring five stories about the courageous women in Signe’s family and their battles with madness, visual metaphors, surreal images and director’s narration.

„With her new feature, Rocks in My Pockets, Latvian-born artist and filmmaker Signe Baumane examines her family members’ history with mental illness (as well as her own struggles) with humor, delicacy and eye-catching animation techniques. (..) Baumane’s commitment and talent is overwhelming, and her production is about as “independent” as it gets.” – USA TODAY

“Animated in a striking combination of real paper-mache sets and props and hand-drawn 2D figures, the film explores with wit, surreal invention and insight something left far too often undiscussed.” – THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“With ‘Rocks In My Pockets,’ Signe Baumane presents a sharp, surprising and funny animated feature, plumbing the depths of depression via her family history. Guided by Ms. Baumane’s almost musically accented voice-over, this hand-drawn debut feature is based upon the mental struggles of her Latvian grandmother and other relatives. It’s told with remorseless psychological intelligence, wicked irony and an acerbic sense of humor.” – NEW YORK TIMES

Shortlisted among the 20 films for the Best Animated Feature at 2014 “Oscars”, it was also the “Oscar” entry from Latvia.

BONUS FEATURES: Behind-the-scenes footage and making-of documentaries (in English); Director’s comments and interview with Signe (in Latvian, no subtitles).
