Rocks in My Pockets
January 12, 2015
In the animated film Rocks in My Pockets, Latvian-born artist and filmmaker Signe Baumane tells five fantastical tales based on the courageous women in her family and their battles with mental illness. With boundless imagination and a twisted sense of humor, she has created daring stories of art, romance, marriage, nature, business, and Eastern European upheaval—all in the fight for her own sanity. After the screening, director Signe Baumane discussed the film with Dr. Peter Whybrow of the Semel Institute.
