As of midnight, I locked and rendered the final credits for Sita Sings the Blues. Finally! At last! I set up my machine to render the final reel of the film overnight and went to bed, exhausted.
Lying there, drifting off, I remembered I’d forgotten one name. Just one name. Couldn’t it wait until tomorrow? …

Please help me choose a poster design to take to Berlin:

Praise be to Laxmi!
Laxmi is both the eternal form of Sita and the Goddess of Wealth. I never really thought about her wealth aspect until now. Because my mind is so blown by the donations coming in for the 35mm master of Sita Sings the Blues.

Sita is in! It’s programmed in the “Generation” section, 14-Plus, but hopefully older people will come too (the film is intended for adults). The festival is February 7-17; I don’t know yet exactly when and where my screenings will take place. If you’re in Berlin, give me a holler. If you’re a publicist in …
