Secular Student Alliance @ Sacramento State University

Film Screening: Sita Sings the Blues

Sita Still 2

The Secular Student Alliance at Sacramento State is hosting a film screening of the indie animated film, Sita Sings the Blues.  This is the first in a series of events on exploring ancient mythology’s intersection with modern art. The event is FREE and open to the public.

The Film

Sita Sings the Blues intersperses events from the Ramayana, light-hearted but knowledgeable discussion of historical background by a trio of Indian shadow puppets, musical interludes voiced with tracks by Annette Hanshaw and scenes from the artist’s own life. The ancient mythological and modern biographical plots are parallel tales, sharing numerous themes.

The film does not carry a MPAA rating; however, if it did, it would probably be rated PG.

The Parking

Daily parking passes are available for $6 from the yellow dispenser in the parking structure (on the 3rd floor, west corner by the elevator), adjacent to the University Union and Bookstore. I strongly recommend parking in the parking structure, because it is close to the event and the other parking lots are reserved for staff.

Daily parking passes may also be purchased using the iPhone/Android app Pay-by-Phone. Enter Sac State’s code 5115 and enter in the license plate number. No pass needs to be displayed once parked.

The Venue

The event is in the Redwood Room on the First Floor of the University Union. This map shows how to get to the venue from either entrance to campus: http://bit.ly/sacstatemap
