Brooklyn-based filmmaker Signe Baumane has released a teaser trailer for her first feature-length effort, Rocks In My Pockets. The film is “a personal story about mental illness afflicting women in Signe’s family and her own encounters with suicide and depression.”
Baumane is stretching into new territory with this feature and it will be interesting to see how she handles the difficult subject matter. It’s certainly a big departure from the sexually charged and comedic fare for which she is best known, like Birth, Teat Beat of Sex, and Five Fucking Fables. Rocks In My Pockets combines drawn animation with papier-mâché backgrounds and is scheduled for completion in the first half of 2013.
