Poster for Blue Like Me: The Art of Siona Benjamin

Blue Like Me is a documentary that profiles Indian-American artist Siona Benjamin. Raised in the small Bene Israel Jewish community in Mumbai, India, Benjamin's art fuses world religions with eastern myths and western pop culture to create vibrant new worlds. Blue Like Me travels with Siona to Mumbai, revisiting the Bene Israel Jews portrayed in her recent Fulbright project. Siona Benjamin is a daughter of Israel, born of India, and a citizen of the world-and that world is blue.
