My Love Affair with Marriage My Love Affair with Marriage

Signe Baumane / Latvia, Luxembourg, USA / 2022 / 108 min / English

Signe’s new animated feature fuses animation with music, theatre, science, photography, three-dimensional sets and traditional hand-drawn animation to tell the story of a spirited young woman’s quest for perfect love and lasting marriage.

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.

"My first animated feature, Rocks in My Pockets, was based on true events involving five women of my family, including myself, and our battles with depression and suicide. There are similarities between the two, but My Love Affair with Marriage is slightly more removed from the purely personal space. I would say that it took the possibilities presented by Rocks... and expanded them, making this new film, hopefully, more accessible and universal."

- Signe Baumane

"I collaborated with theater director Sturgis Warner on the script and this sparked the idea that the story needed elevated theatricality, a stylized approach to lift it up from the mundane. There are four general environments in the film, each represented by a different aesthetic. [...] The idea behind this approach is that life unfolds on several levels: personal, biological, political and imaginary. I believe that animation is the perfect medium to depict them. It can tell complex stories in an accessible way."
