Signe Baumane’s new feature film,”Rocks In My Pockets” will screen in LA at Laemmle Royal September 12th through the 18th, with a free (no reservations: first come, first served) sneak preview at the Cinefamily on September 10th.
This much lauded independent animated feature employs a very rare animation technique, using stop motion backgrounds with 2D hand drawn animation to tell a family’s history of depression and suicide. Using humor and visual metaphors, animation allows a much lighter touch to the storytelling than might be possible in a live action film.
ASIFA members who miss the free screening should bring their membership card to Laemmle Royal screenings for a possible “award season” discount.
Ms Baumane will be at every screening from the 10th through the 15th for an introduction and Q&A.
