"Sita Sings the Blues" Screening and Q&A

An Artist Tries the Free Software Way and Wins Big (in Pupin 301, NW corner of campus, next to Shapiro)

"Sita Sings the Blues" is a popular film released under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license. The filmmaker, Nina Paley, consciously chose a Free license in order to achieve the same dynamics for her film as software has in the free software world, and she succeeded.

By the end of 2009, "Sita Sings the Blues" was the best-reviewed new release in the country (http://moviereviewintelligence.com/index.aspx?BID=27&RID=805&CID=0) and audiences love it. We will hold a talk afterwards with the filmmaker and myself (Nina Paley is now artist-in-residence at our non-profit QuestionCopyright.org, and we helped her do the free release), both answering questions from the audience and talking about how free software methods can work for artists in general.
