Latvia, United States | 2014 | Signe Baumane
In this new film that Variety hails as a “modern milestone in animated storytelling,” Latvian artist and animator Signe Baumane tells five fantastical tales based on the lives of five courageous women in her family. These women, representing three generations on two continents (and including Baumane herself), have battled mental illness—mostly depression—for decades. Baumane tackles this sober subject with invention and humor, combining hand-drawn figures with paper-maché props and stop motion. “[A] sardonically hilarious, sneakily moving, autobiographical animated feature.” –The Boston Globe.
In English. Blu-ray. 88 min. Sunday moviegoers should allow extra time to park; Holiday CircleFest takes place in University Circle that day.
