Signe Baumane’s films are based on personal experience, and she often narrates them in her own voice. They are films about humans and their abysmal depths. Because with her animation, she succeeds in lifting the stories to a universal level.
For her inspiring work, the ITFS honours Signe Baumane with the Honorary Trickstar.
From an early age, songs and fairy tales convinced Zelma that Love would solve all her problems as long as she abided by societal 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.
