Sita Sings the Blues comes to Netflix

After years of "copyright hell" fighting to clear the rights to the music in the stellar animated feature Sita Sings the Blues, the movie is finally available through NetFlix. Congrats, Nina Paley! (Thanks, Xeni!)


  1. Nice! I was so glad when I had a chance to watch this before all the copywank kicked off. Seconding the salutations.

  2. Isn’t this old news (or was there a brief burp)? I just checked my Netflix rental history, and I’d rented Sita Sings the Blues on 04 December 2009.

  3. This is fantastic news!! I’ve been following this project for a long time… I’m very happy for Nina. Cory, it’d be great if you guys could enable re-tweeting and facebook-sharing on mini-posts, I’d like to share this.

  4. Sita is one of my favourite animated films ever. Grats to Nina! She always intended for her work to be for everyone; it’s nice that this has now actually happened.

    1. It’s a great film, no doubt, but its appearance on Netflix doesn’t quite make it available “for everyone”; perhaps we’d better say “available to a new audience” instead…

      1. It’s already virtually as “available to everyone” as possible through
        I’m talking streaming, http and torrent downloads, DVD purchase and PBS schedule.. I loved the movie, and donated a small amount through the webpage. Check it out!
