Sita Sings the Blues

“I am enchanted. I am swept away. I am smiling from one end of the film to the other.”

This was film critic Roger Ebert’s reaction to Nina Paley’s Sita Sings the Blues (2008), an animated film that follows two parallel stories. The first is the ancient tale of Sita, the heroine of the Hindu mythological story of the Ramayana, and the second is the modern biographical tale of Nina, the filmmaker herself.
