Synopsis


Amina, a young woman (17), is pregnant and afraid to give birth. For consolation and advice she goes to older women but their stories scare her even more.

Signe Baumane


Signe Baumane, an independent animator known for her controversial films on the subjects of sex, pregnancy, dentists and madness, was born in Latvia in 1964. Signe studied Philosophy at the Moscow State University. The one thing she learned in her five years of Philosophy study was that knowledge is relative: what you know to be the truth today can become a lie tomorrow. In 1991 Signe was given an opportunity to direct her first animated short, The Witch and the Cow. When the film was finished Signe started to work as a freelance designer and illustrator with publishing houses in Moscow and Riga. Her first films also showed her fascination with animals, which are a big source of her inspiration.
