Ever since she was little Zelma was convinced that, if she behaved like a decent, respectable young girl, she would find love with a big L. However, her first, timid interactions with the opposite sex proved that reality is woefully far removed from her amorous notions. Animator Signe Baumane treats romantic relationships – and the expectations that arise from them – with her typical, lightly ironic detachment, and all this seasoned with musical interjections from a Greek chorus and illuminating details of neurochemical processes in the brain.


Synopsis

Ever since she was little Zelma was convinced that, if she behaved like a decent, respectable young girl, she would find love with a big L; love that would solve all her problems and give meaning to her life. However, her first, timid interactions with the opposite sex proved that reality is woefully far removed from her amorous notions. Signe Baumane, a Latvian-born, New York-based independent animator, treats gender issues and romantic relationships – and the expectations that arise from them – with the typical, lightly ironic detachment that Karlovy Vary festival visitors would have encountered in her debut Rocks in My Pockets. And all this seasoned with musical interjections from a Greek chorus and illuminating details of neurochemical processes in the brain.
