The library may be closed but that doesn’t mean we can’t keep the movie screenings going. Join us on our Facebook page at 7:00 PM for an online screening of Sita Sings the Blues, Nina Paley’s animated retelling of the epic Indian tale of Ramayana set to the 1920s jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw.
Sita is a goddess separated from her beloved Lord and 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. Sita Sings the Blues earns its tagline as “the Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told.”
