Sita Sings The Blues

Has an interesting mix of animation, Indonesian shadow puppet work and 1920's era jazz. Animator Nina Paley's indulges us in her own interpretation of the Hindu epic Ramayana
"the greatest break-up story ever told" and set it to the 1920's jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw to imaginative effect...The eclectic cultural tapestry that is Sita Sings the Blues, is an 82-minute feature that combines autobiography with a retelling of the classic Indian myth..Betty Boop rocks and you know it!
