Meet the Director of Rocks In My Pockets, Signe Baumane and see her film, the Oscar Submission for Best Foreign Language Film from Latvia

Oct 1 – 9, 2014

Exclusive Miami Premiere Engagement! "Rocks In My Pockets is a story of mystery and redemption. The film is based on true events involving the women of my family, including myself, and our battles with madness. It raises questions of how much family genetics determine who we are and if it is possible to outsmart one’s own DNA. The film is packed with visual metaphors, surreal images and my twisted sense of humor. It is an animated tale full of art, women, strange daring stories, Latvian accents, history, nature, adventure and more" – Director Signe Baumane (In English)

WINNER: Karlovy Vary Film Festival FIPRESCI Prize

"…AN ENJOYABLE FUNNY AND COMPLEX TALE of the women in her family and their battles with madness, it is A WELCOME CONTRAST TO MODERN COMPUTER-GENERATED ANIMATION." – Mark Adams, SCREEN DAILY

"Boasting a narrative of extraordinary complexity and density, stuffed with irony, humor and tales-within-tales… a fascinating and very personal look at mental illness, as well as familial and societal dictates and dynamics." – Alissa Simon, VARIETY

"A rollercoaster ride level of entertainment. …BRINGS THE FORM OF ANIMATION BACK TO A MORE ADULT AND MATURE WORLD." – Matt Micucci, CineCola
