When dealing with depression and mental illness, one of the most creative ways can be through an original animated film.
"Rocks In My Pockets," by accomplished animator and filmmaker Signe Baumane, addresses women and depression from a different and surprising perspective.
"Rocks In My Pockets" is a story of mystery and redemption. The film is based on real events that involve the women of Signe Baumane's family, including herself, and her battles with mental illness. It raises questions about how much family genetics determines who we are and if it is possible to be more cunning than DNA itself. The movie is full of visual metaphors, surreal images and my twisted sense of humor. It is an animated story full of art, women, strange daring stories, Latvian accents, history, nature, adventure and more.
Some stories are told from a comfortable armchair next to a warm fireplace. But this story is quite different. In the crazy world of war, divorce, politics, sex, business, education, money, secrets, marriage, power, motherhood, violence. In this crazy world, how do you stay sane? This is a story about five women in my family and our search for sanity. My grandmother Anna, a lively spirit, then mother of eight children. And my cousins: Miranda, an aspiring artist; Linda, an ambitious student; Irbe, a quiet music teacher; and me. I look at my family and ask: can I escape my destiny? The road to sanity is a wild journey. How in this crazy world do you heal a mind? Rocks in my pockets, a funny movie about depression. Click here to obtain more information.
