“Review Copies”


Look what arrived today! Thanks to Gillian and Sylvie at Elektrofilm for the professional authoring in both PAL and NTSC formats that hopefully won’t crash like my home-authored version, and especially to my genius Momz for managing what turned into a more complicated logistical challenge than any of us imagined.

These aren’t for sale, of course – that would be illegal. They’re just festival screeners and review copies for, like, reviewing and screening in a festive manner.

Update: That said, it has some, ah, glitches. Glitches that apparently some people won’t notice, or think I did on purpose, but watching them feels like knives in my heart. Glitches which I must correct on the “next” version. Glitches which were in my HD master. Oh boy.

  1. oboyoboyoboyoboyoboy!! If ever there could be one single reason to start my own film festival this would be it.

  2. just wanted to say that ive been a fan for some time, and i sure wish i had an idea, all the right connections or a huge pile of cash to help your film to be seen- only thing i can say is that when they do become available, i will purchase multiple copies as gifts for friends (take “fetch” for example… all my dog loving cohorts still tell me how much they like seeing that gem)
    best of luck to you nina, hope to see sita on the big screen soon


  3. how would -ahem- a legitimate scholarly reviewer (with a job in the academy even!), who has routinely recommended his students to watch the released youtube clips when teaching the Ramayana, get his hands on a copy to review?

  4. So sad not to be able to expose our Hindu grandaughter to Sita. So far no way to attend any showing. Let us know when it can be purchased.
