Dinner and a Movie: "Sita Sings the Blues"

  • Apr 2, 2011 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members


"Sita Sings the Blues" is a 2008 animated feature film that is "written, directed, produced and animated by American artist Nina Paley primarily using 2D computer graphics and Flash Animation. It intersperses events from the Ramayana, illustrated conversation between Indian shadow puppets, musical interludes voiced with tracks by Annette Hanshaw and scenes from the artist's own life."

The film is charming and critically acclaimed, though somewhat controversial due to the associated copyright laws. It's more about using whimsical creativity to illustrate themes rather than serving up just the classic story. 



We'll start with a pitch-in dinner at 7ish, and the movie will be around 8:30.

P.S. For those who can make it over before the movie to have dinner tomorrow, I'll have a few vegetarian curry dishes (one Indiana curry and one Thai curry), brown rice and iced tea

If you're undecided on an item to bring for dinner, Trader Joe's has all kinds of Indian and international type sauces that are easy to use, just add ingredients to make a dish. They also have naan bread there. 

Other places for pre-made items and ingredients:

International Bazar 

4225 Lafayette Rd Indianapolis (IN) 


Patel Brothers 

4150 Lafayette Rd Suite F Indianapolis (IN)

And if you'd like to stick with a standard midwest party item :-) instead, please go ahead! Any type of snack, 
side dish or dessert is always great and very appreciated by people. And beverages are very appreciated, too. Thanks!

    I wasn't sure what to expect after seeing the trailer to "Sita Sings the Blues", but, was very pleased with the film. I loved the music and visual illustrations, as well as the plot. Very empowering. I also learned some new things about India. Great company to watch the film with and the menu really enhanced the theme this meetup. Great company, too!
