DocuClub partners with UnionDocs to bring you "Sita Sings the Blues"!
DocuClub is partnering with Brooklynâ€™s UnionDocs to co-present a special screening of Nina Paleyâ€™s "Sita Sings the Blues" on Saturday, September 12, at 7 p.m.
322 Union Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11211
"Sita Sings the Blues" is a musical, animated personal interpretation of the Indian epic the Ramayana, focusing on the relationship between the gods Sita and Rama, juxtaposed with the filmmakerâ€™s story of the dissolution of her marriage.
Because some of the songs featured in "Sita Sings the Blues" have not been secured due to copyright issues, the film uses a Creative Commons license for its distribution.

On-site dispensing dessert will be Sweet Tooth of the Tiger, a d.i.y. food and participatory art project that takes the form of a bake sale that utilizes the public sphere as a place for eating, feeding, and talking with your mouth full. Details here: www.sweettoothofthetiger.com.
A post-screening discussion on "Sita Sings the Blues"â€™ funding and distribution strategy will be held by Karl Fogel of QuestionCopyright.org.
