“Sita Sings the Blues” Free to Watch Online; Donations accepted
Opening credits of Paley's "Sita Sings the Blues"
After she spent three years working on her film, animator Nina Paley’s Sita Sings the Blues could not be released, due to licensing issues with music used throughout the piece. It’s now available online; Paley ended up paying the whopping $50,000 in copyright fees by way of a loan, which now remains largely unrepaid.
You can read more about Paley’s copyright struggle, and hear her thoughts on our “permission culture,” at QuestionCopyright.org (where you can also donate to help repay the loan).
You can watch/download Paley’s entire film online at Thirteen.org.
