Hintergrund dieses faszinierenden Films ist die Geschichte von Rama und Sita aus dem Ramayana, dem zweiten indischen Nationalepos.
Das Ramayana erzählt die Geschichte des Prinzen Rama und seiner Frau Sita, die von einem Dämon entführt und zurückerobert wird.
Tragischerweise ist die Überlieferung des Rama-Sita-Mythos unbehelligt von aller Vernunft der Moderne noch heute Grund für die grausame Todesursache vieler Frauen, die zum Beweis ihrer Unschuld von ihren eifersüchtigen Männern angezündet werden.
Aber es ist auch die lange schwere Reise der Künstlerin für die Freiheit eines Projektes in kontrollierter Welt ==>> XXX
Unglaublich, aber es ist eine kosten-und rechtefreie Künstlerproduktion im Netz.
verbunden mit einer modernen Liebesgeschichte, viel Spaß auf dieser abendfüllenden Reise,
Die Künsterlin, die diesen Film als freies Werk ins Netz gestellt hat, schreibt dies auf ihrer Seite, ich will es wiedergeben, es ist wichtig und lesenswert
People often ask "Are TV rights available?", "Are theatrical rights available?", etc. The answer is yes, yes, and yes. You already have those rights. Sita Sings the Blues uses a yes-based distribution model. It is not part of the permission culture, it is part of the yes culture. So if you'd like hold a screening, don't ask first — just do it. (And see here for how to add it to this page). See the license page for more information about Sita Sings the Blues' permissive licensing.
I hereby give Sita Sings the Blues to you. Like all culture, it belongs to you already, but I am making it explicit with a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike License. Please distribute, copy, share, archive, and show Sita Sings the Blues. From the shared culture it came, and back into the shared culture it goes.
You don't need my permission to copy, share, publish, archive, show, sell, broadcast, or remix Sita Sings the Blues. Conventional wisdom urges me to demand payment for every use of the film, but then how would people without money get to see it? How widely would the film be disseminated if it were limited by permission and fees? Control offers a false sense of security. The only real security I have is trusting you, trusting culture, and trusting freedom.
That said, my colleagues and I will enforce the Share Alike License. You are not free to copy-restrict ("copyright") or attach Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) to Sita Sings the Blues or its derivative works.
Some of the songs in Sita Sings the Blues are not free, and may never be; copyright law requires you to obey their respective licenses. This is not by my choice; please see our restrictions page for more.
There is the question of how I'll get money from all this. My personal experience confirms audiences are generous and want to support artists. Surely there's a way for this to happen without centrally controlling every transaction. The old business model of coercion and extortion is failing. New models are emerging, and I'm happy to be part of that. But we're still making this up as we go along. You are free to make money with the free content of Sita Sings the Blues, and you are free to share money with me. People have been making money in Free Software for years; it's time for Free Culture to follow. I look forward to your innovations.
If you have questions, please ask each other. If you have ideas, please implement them - you don't need my permission or anyone else's (except for the copyright-restricted songs, of course). If you see abuses, please address them, but don't get bogged down in arcane details of copyright law. The copyright system wants you to think in terms of asking permission; I want you to think in terms of freedom. We've set up this Wiki to get things started. Feel free to improve it!
I've got to get back to my life now, and make some new art. Thanks for your support! This film wouldn't exist without you.
