DocuClub partners with UnionDocs to bring you "Sita Sings the Blues"!
DocuClub is partnering with Brooklyn’s UnionDocs to co-present a special screening of Nina Paley’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 filmmaker’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"’ funding and distribution strategy will be held by Karl Fogel of QuestionCopyright.org.
