Sita Sings the Blues

By now you are hopefully familiar with the copyright debate surrounding Nina Paley's "Sita Sings the Blues". (If not, go here and here). Last week we mentioned that the movie would be aired on PBS.


Now, the movie is also available online for free viewing at thirteen.org:
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 e-mail. Three hilarious shadow puppets narrate both ancient tragedy and modern comedy in this beautifully animated interpretation of the Indian epic Ramayana. Set to the 1920’s jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw, Sita Sings the Blues earns its tagline as “The Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told.”
Nina Paley says:
I hereby give Sita Sings the Blues to you. Like all culture, it belongs to you already, but I am making it explicit with a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike License. Please distribute, copy, share, archive, and show Sita Sings the Blues. From the shared culture it came, and back into the shared culture it goes.

The torrent is also available at mininova.org. It's licensed under a creative common's share-alike. Check out - http://www.mininova.org/tor/2265620
