My Love Affair with Marriage

My Love Affair with Marriage

From an early age, songs and fairytales convinced Zelma that love would solve all her problems as long as she abided by society's expectations of how a girl should act. But as she grew older something didn’t seem right with the concept of love: the more she tried to conform, the more her body resisted. A story about the acceptance of the inner female rebellion. 

After announcing herself as a major talent in the world of animated filmmaking by exploring her struggles with mental illness with humour and poignancy in her 2014 debut Rocks in My Pockets, Latvian-born filmmaker Signe Baumane returns eight years later with her second feature. Through a blend of animation, music, comedy and absurdism, Baumane now turns her sights to her misadventures in love, sex and marriage. 

Watch: director Signe Baumane is in conversation with film critic and writer Cerise Howard.
