88 minutes. A poignant and often hilarious tale of mystery, mental health, redemption and survival. Based on true events about five women of the filmmaker's family, including herself, and their battles with depression and madness. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * ----“With ‘Rocks In My Pockets’, Signe Baumane presents a sharp, surprising and funny animated feature, plumbing the depths of depression via her family history. Guided by Ms. Baumane’s almost musically accented voice-over, this hand-drawn debut feature is based upon the mental struggles of her Latvian grandmother and other relatives. It’s told with remorseless psychological intelligence, wicked irony and an acerbic sense of humor.” – NEW YORK TIMES * * * * * * * * * * * ----“Boasting a narrative of extraordinary complexity and density, stuffed with irony, humor and tales-within-tales... imaginative... fascinating and very personal.” – VARIETY * * * * * * * * * * * * * * ----“Animated in a striking combination of real paper-mache sets and props and hand-drawn 2D figures, the film explores with wit, surreal invention and insight something left far too often undiscussed.” – THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
