Free Screening of Sita Sings the Blues is Saturday!

Nina Paley’s uncompromised vision of the ancient Hindu epic “The Ramayana” is brought to life in Sita Sings the Blues.

The mix of bold, colourful animation and a soundtrack of catchy earworms was enough to make the film an indie hit 10 years ago and it has continued to win fans in the decade since its release.

This Saturday, July 14 at 12:30PM, register for a free screening of Sita Sings the Blues which is playing as part of the Indian Summer Festival.

The screening is taking place at the Museum of Vancouver located in Vanier Park (1100 Chestnut Street). Tickets are extremely limited so be sure to secure yours in advance at the Vancity Theatre website.

Whether you’ve seen it before or are seeing it for the first time, you will not be disappointed!

When: Saturday, July 14 @ 12:30 pm (doors open at 12:00 pm)
Admission: FREE
Where: Museum of Vancouver
1100 Chestnut Street
Vancouver, Canada
