Being a story of mystery and redemption, the film is based on true events involving five women of Signe Baumane’s family, including herself, and their battles with depression and suicide. It raises questions of how much family genetics determine who we are and if it is possible to outsmart one’s own DNA. The film is packed with visual metaphors, surreal images and a twisted sense of humor. It is an animated tale full of art, women, strange daring stories, Latvian accents, history and many more.

Recommended for adults only!

Signe Baumane, an independent animator based in New York, known for her controversial films on the subjects of sex, pregnancy, dentists and madness, was born in Latvia in 1964. In all of Signe’s work, the influences of Eastern European traditions like those of Stasys Eidrigevicius in illustration and Jan Svankmajer in animation are easy to spot. But her New York films have a new, specifically American sensibility with their accessible story lines, developed gags and outrageous humour.
