Join us for the animated film ROCKS IN MY POCKETS, along with an introduction and Q&A with filmmaker Signe Baumane.
In the new animated gem 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 madness. With boundless imagination and a twisted sense of humor, she has created daring stories of art, romance, marriage, nature, business, and Eastern European upheavalâ€”all in the fight for her own sanity. Employing a unique, beautifully textured combination of papier-mÃ¢chÃ© stop-motion and classic hand-drawn animation (with inspiration from Jan Svankmajer and Bill Plympton), Baumane has produced a poignant and often hilarious tale of mystery, mental health, redemption and survival.
ROCKS IN MY POCKETS is sponsored by Mental Health Greensboro and NAMI Guilford. Signe Baumane, the filmmaker, will introduce the film and answer questions after the movie. Tickets available in advance and online for $11.25 at Carousel Luxury Cinemas at 1305 Battleground Ave. Student and senior discounts also available.
