Sita Sings the Blues

When: Wed., Sept. 23, 7-9 p.m. 2009

Describing Sita Sings the Blues, tonight's film from the Independent Film Society of Colorado, is a tricky endeavor. It's for adults, though animated. It tells the ancient Indian myth of Ramayana, but combines it with a modern story of betrayal. It's a comedy, but also a musical set to the 1920s jazz of Annette Hanshaw. And, according to Roger Ebert's rave review, "There is a lot more to it than that, involving a monkey army, a lustful king who occasionally grows 10 heads, synchronized birds, a chorus line of gurus, and a tap-dancing moon." I'm out of room to explain, so just go see it. It starts at 7 at the Lon Chaney Theater (221 E. Kiowa St., ifsoc.org). Tickets are $5-$6. You won't be sorry. — Jill Thomas

Price: $5-$6
