“Sita Sings the Blues” on the big screen in New York City! HELD OVER AGAIN

Sita Sings the Blues

Sita Sings the Blues will have a week-long run in New York City’s IFC Film Center, December 25th – 31st! January 5th! January 26

This is was a full theatrical run, with 7-8 screenings a day. The filmmaker, Nina Paley will be doing Q&A after the 8:25pm shows most nights. On Monday, Dec. 28th, the conversation will be about the film’s free distribution model and the free culture movement.

It’s kind of unbelieveable that this thing has been extended for 5 weeks. Granted, it’s down to just one show a day now. But we only thought it would run one week, so this run has exceeded everyone’s expectations.

Tickets are available online. Here’s a show schedule (click on the time to purchase tickets for that show):

Nina says, “I’m doing Q and A’s tonight and tomorrow after the 8:30ish shows, then Friday and Saturday after the 4:40pm shows. Then I might take a little break, who knows.” no more Q and A’s – they were fun for the first 3 weeks though!

IFC Film Center has beautiful screens and is located at 323 Sixth Avenue at West Third Street in the West Village, right at the W. 4th St. subway station (A, C, E, B, D, F, & V subway lines).

Sita Sings the Blues is a terrific film; it won all those awards for a reason. Please tell all your New York friends — let’s pack the house!

    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.”

  2. Heh. It looks like one of the other distributors of “Sita Sings the Blues” is automatically leaving comments on Sita-related articles. But I’ll leave that comment up; wouldn’t want to discourage them, even if it is a tad spammy.

    However, if you really want the maximum amount of money to go to Nina Paley, then consider purchasing the DVD from our online store, either the standard edition ($20 US, half of the profits go to Nina), or the artist’s edition ($100 US, all the profits go to Nina). The packaging is beautiful, and your money goes to a good cause in both cases, because with the standard edition, Nina splits the net with QuestionCopyright.org.
