Sita Sings the Blues (2008) FREE ENTRY

Deptford Cinema, Lewisham, SE8 4PQ
Sat 29th July 2017 7:30PM


“the Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told”

Sita Sings the Blues is an intriguing and stylistic, feature animation directed by Nina Paley. 

The film charts how the lives of its two main characters – Sita and Nina – who exist in different times and spaces, interact on a thematic level. Sita is a goddess and she is separated from her beloved 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. The animation is set to the 1920's jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw.

"A spellbinding film that charms with its quirkiness in almost every sequence."
James Plath - Movie Metropolis

"Captivating, mesmerizing, spellbinding -- I'll throw everything in the movie-critic book at this animated feature by Nina Paley. "
J. R. Jones - Chicago Reader
