Rocks in My Pockets (2014)
Dir. Signe Baumane / 88 mins
Rocks In My Pockets is a story of mystery and redemption. The film is based on true events involving five women of Signe Baumane's family, including herself, and their battles with depression and suicide. 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 a twisted sense of humour. It is an animated tale full of art, women, strange daring stories, Latvian accents, history, nature, adventure and more.
Alongside the screening, there will be a presentation of artworks created during workshops delivered by Arts for Health.
