Here’s the actual trailer for Nina Paley’s amazing animated feature SITA SINGS THE BLUES. You’ll have to click the play button to get it to run (write up after the trailer):

I’ve been a huge fan of Nina Paley’s comics since I was in college back in the early ’90′s. Her work has always been a huge inspiration to me for many years. Recently James Kochalka mentioned this movie on Monday’s installment of American Elf and suddenly I felt compelled to spend the next hour blogging about it. Suffice it to say that I haven’t seen the movie yet (although I saw a very extended early cut at some point a couple years ago). It’s amazing to me when people take a few years to get something like this done. Nina spent 5 years on it. I can’t wait to finally see it in its entirety!
