BOSTON’S CHLOTRUDIS SOCIETY HONORS ANIMATION FILMMAKER SIGNE BAUMANE AT ANNUAL INDIE AWARD CEREMONY

Signe BaumaneOn Sunday March 22nd, the Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film will honor filmmaker Signe Baumann with its Visionary Award, during its 21st annual Chlotrudis Awards ceremony at the historic Brattle Theater in Cambridge’s Harvard Square.   Ms. Baumane will be in attendance to accept her special award from Chlotrudis to celebrate an impressive and broad-ranging career.  The show begins at 5pm, and tickets are $20 ($15 for Chlotrudis and Brattle members), and can be purchased online at the Brattle’s website, www.brattle.org.

Signe Baumane, born in Latvia, is an animator, writer, fine artist and illustrator now living and working in New York City.  Having made several successful short films, including NATASHA and WOMAN, both Chlotrudis Short Film Festival finalists, this past year saw the debut of Baumane’s first full length animated feature, ROCKS IN HER POCKETS.  The film was selected as Latvia’s entry for the Oscars best foreign film category, and is also nominated for the Chlotrudis Awards’ Buried Treasure category. 

She began her career as an animator in Latvia, moving to New York in the mid-90’s to work with legendary film animator Bill Plympton as cel painter and color stylist, and over the years she has been a frequent collaborator on a number of his films.   With her own films, Baumane has won a cult reputation and critical acclaim for her frank takes on sex, pregnancy and dentistry, all done in a distinctive hand drawn style.

Rocks in my pockets

Animated Feature by Latvian-American Director
To Premiere at Major European Film Festival

Brooklyn, NY - June 3rd, 2014 - Latvian born Signe Baumane's animated feature film "Rocks In My Pockets" will have its world premiere at the 49th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. It is the first animated film in the history of the Karlovy Vary Film Festival to be chosen for the Official Selection - Competition program. The premiere will take place on Monday July 7th, 2014, at 8:00 p.m. in the 1,146 seat Grand Hall.

"Rocks In My Pockets," a fantastical tale based on true events, is about five women of Signe Baumane's family, including herself, and their battles with depression and madness. The film combines a wide sweep of Latvian history with deeply personal stories of family secrets, art, romance, marriage, nature and political upheaval, all in the quest for sanity.

Baumane employs a unique, beautifully textured combination of papier-mâché, stop-motion and classic hand-drawn animation producing a poignant and often hilarious tale of mystery, mental health, redemption and survival.

Signe Baumane is a Latvian born New York based independent animator.  Her fifteen animated shorts have been screened in over 200 film festivals around the world including Sundance and Berlinale. "Rocks In My Pockets" is her first feature film.

Ms. Baumane says, "In some ways 'Rocks In My Pockets' is an old-fashioned detective story. Me digging into family history, searching for clues, figuring things out - why some of us have obsessive suicidal thoughts, why we break down, what makes us who we are, and in the end what saves us. Hopefully people find the film entertaining. And perhaps some important conversations will come out of it, as well."

"Rocks In My Pockets" has been produced by Signe Baumane along with co-producer Sturgis Warner. Women Make Movies was the project's fiscal facilitator. 800 backers supported the film in a successful Kickstarter campaign.   

"Rocks In My Pockets" will be distributed in the U.S. and Canada by Zeitgeist Films. Locomotive Productions is co-producing a Latvian version. New Europe Film Sales is the sales agent for the rest of the world. Online streaming and downloads will be available through Yekra, Ltd.
