Nina Paley and EFF: Sita Sings the Blues benefit in San Francisco, July 20

"Join the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Cartoon Art Museum for a special evening with Nina Paley as we screen her award-winning animated feature film "Sita Sings the Blues," described by the creator as "the greatest breakup story ever told." Paley animated and produced the film single-handedly over the course of five years on a home computer, and will be on hand to take filmgoers behind the scenes.

"The benefit screening will take place at the Delancey Street Foundation Screening Room at 600 The Embarcadero, San Francisco, CA 94107 on Tuesday, July 20, 2010. Doors open at 6:30 PM. Film begins at 7 PM. Advance tickets may be purchased online for $25 at, or for $30 at the door the night of the screening."

Sita Sings The Blues: A Benefit Screening Hosted by Nina Paley on July 20, 2010 (Thanks, Hugh!)


  1. I can’t recommend this highly enough. I own a copy and watch it regularly. It will be amazing on the big screen. If you’re in the area, please go to this screening. Very worth it.

  2. I just watched this last weekend. Really good. I would highly recommend to anyone who has a chance to check it out on the big screen.

  3. The most exciting part of the evening will be the theatrical premiere of a new short cartoon I made specifically for the EFF!

  4. Would be nice to see it on a larger screen… I ordered a “pre-downloaded DVD” and a T-shirt (musician apes) specifically in order to toss some money and publicity in Ms. Paley’s direction.
