Sita Sings the Blues Q&A


2008_Sita.jpgThis is the legend of India’s Ramayana as it has never been retold before. Betrothal, betrayal, exile, kidnapping, demonic torment and the whole heroic cycle unfolds while Sita, in the striking voice of 1920s jazz vocalist Annette Hanshaw, sings the blues.

Director Nina Paley is a guest of the festival and will be conducting a Q&A at tonight's session of
Sita Sings the Blues. Book now.

The Horseman Q&A


2008_thehorseman.jpgAn act unforgiven. A father lost in grief - and driven to vengeance.

"The Horseman is a balls to the wall, edgy thriller. Think Get Carter in 'Stubbies' crossed with Tarantino."
- Greg McLean (director - Wolf Creek & Rogue)

Steven Kastrissios will be conducting a Q&A at this evenings session of The Horseman at 9.15pm at Greater Union 5.
