Sita Sings At Red Vic in San Fran

Long-delayed SITA SINGS THE BLUES will see a theatrical run at the Red Vic in San Francisco from May 8-12, 2009.

SITA SINGS THE BLUES will be distributed by Shadow Distribution west of the Mississippi and by GKIDS east of that river. Shadow made a huge hit out of PARROTS OF TELEGRAPH HILL. Creator Nina Paley said, "I am thrilled that SITA is going to be at the Red Vic, one of my favorite SF theaters. I have many fond memories of ASIFA-SF and Ideas In Animation events at the Red Vic, as well as art films. I feel so triumphant!"

The film is being released under a Creative Commons Share Alike license, and can be legally viewed, downloaded, and copied without permission. So far the free content of the film has increased demand for limited versions, like purchasable DVDs (available soon) and theatrical screenings.
