Update: Sita Sings the Blues
Nina Paley’s wonderful animated feature, “the greatest break-up story ever told”, Sita Sings the Blues is now available for free online in its entirety.
A funny and entertaining retelling of the Ramayana juxtaposed with Nina’s true life break-up from her husband, who had left to work in India and eventually broke up with her over email. Whether you’ve ever had your heart ripped to shreds by anyone in your life or not, this film touches on universal ideas of love, commitment, purity and duty. Amazing film!
I was a bit worried about when/how I’d get to see this movie, but there it is! Enjoy and bop back over here sometime and let me know what you thought of it. I loved it!
