SITA SINGS THE BLUES
Music starts at 8pm with screening to follow
Tickets are $15 each with proceeds being shared by the Nickelodeon and the Columbia Museum of Art.

This special screening is open only to members of the Nickelodeon and the Columbia Museum of Art.

Two women having troubles with their men, separated by several centuries, find their stories coming together in this animated comedy-drama from artist and animator Nina Paley. A female cartoonist moves from the United States when her husband gets a new job in India. While acclimating to her new life in India, the cartoonist becomes fascinated with the Hindu folk tale "the Ramayana," in which a beautiful woman named Sita, who was created spontaneously from the Earth, is adopted by King Janaka, pledged to a brave warrior named Rama, and is kidnapped by the demonic leader Ravana. Sita's story is given two visual interpretations at once -- a visually striking abstract version and another which employs a whimsical, cartoony approach and uses vintage recordings of jazz singer Annette Hanshaw for Sita's voice. As the film jumps back and forth between two adaptations of the Ramayana, the cartoonist discovers that her sojourn in India has taken a turn for the worse when her husband falls in love with another woman.

Please note that this screening will take place on Boyd Plaza, in front of the Columbia Museum of Art. Please bring your own lawn or beach chair. Beverages will be available from purchase.
