Celebrate the day after Valentine’s Day with Nina Paley’s Sitayana Sita Sings the Blues, the animated feature based on the ancient Indian epic the Ramayana, as told from Sita’s view. Expected to be completed by 2008, the feature includes jazz vocals from Annette Hanshaw and music from Rohan. Thursday’s screening at the Cinema Arts Centre in Long Island, NY, with Paley in person will be the most extensive show of the work-in-progress yet, featuring eleven musical episodes and the first public screening of the latest chapter, Agni Pariksha (Trial by Fire).
