Circle Cinema presents “SITA SINGS THE BLUES” film & reception to celebrate the unveiling of their new website, designed by Carlos Moreno.
This reception and film are both FREE and open to the public. Donations are welcome, and will be split with the filmmaker, Nina Paley. “Sita Sings the Blues” is the website designer’s choice. The film is free to show, via a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike License. Learn more at sitasingstheblues.com.
Synopsis: Sita is a goddess separated from her beloved Lord and husband Rama. Nina is an animator whose husband moves to India, then dumps her by email. Three hilarious shadow puppets narrate both ancient tragedy and modern comedy in this beautifully animated interpretation of the Indian epic Ramayana. Set to the 1920’s jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw, Sita Sings the Blues earns its tagline as “the Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told.”
The New Website Party and film will be at the Circle Cinema on Sunday March 28 at 8pm. “SITA SINGS THE BLUES” is unrated, and is 92 minutes in length.
