FILM | Rocks in My Pockets 

Depression is, as one might imagine, a rather difficult subject to make humorous. But miraculously, Latvian-born director Signe Baumane does exactly that in her witty, new film, "Rocks in My Pockets," showing this Wednesday at The Little Theatre. Utilizing a combination of papier-mâché stop-motion and classic hand-drawn animation, Baumane weaves a personal tale that explores the history of depression and mental illness throughout the lives of three generations of women in her family. Imaginative and surreal, the award-winning film blends history, psychology, and comedy, proving animation to be the perfect medium to delve into an issue that's far too frequently swept under the rug.

The Little (240 East Avenue) will screen "Rocks in My Pockets" on Wednesday, November 5, at 6:30 p.m. Director Signe Baumane will be in attendance for a Q&A following the screening.
