Screening of Sita Sings The Blues, Friday, April 24, 2020, 2:00pm – 3:30pm

“Sita Sings the Blues is a beautifully animated feature film written, directed, produced, and animated by American artist Nina Paley. The film uses a pared-down adaptation of the legend that retains many of its finer details while adopting a perspective sympathetic towards Sita; in the director’s words, the film is “a tale of truth, justice and a woman’s cry for equal treatment.” It addresses contemporary parallels to Nina’s own life. Join the watch party, answer questions and add comments during the film.

*This film is not graphic. *This film should not be triggering. *Most should be able to view this film without worry. For more information go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sita_Sings_the_Blues. Please watch at your own discretion.”
