Description

★★★★★ BEST ANIMATION ★★★★★

50% SUPPORTS THE ARTIST

Sita is a Hindu goddess, the leading lady of India’s epic the Ramayana and a dutiful wife who follows her husband Rama on a 14 year exile to a forest, only to be kidnapped by an evil king from Sri Lanka. Despite remaining faithful to her husband, Sita is put through many tests. Nina (the filmmaker Nina Paley herself) is an artist who finds parallels in Sita’s life when her husband – in India on a work project - decides to break up their marriage and dump her via email. Three hilarious Indonesian shadow puppets with Indian accents – linking the popularity of the Ramayana from India all the way to the Far East - narrate both the ancient tragedy and modern comedy in this beautifully animated interpretation of the epic.

In her first feature length film, Paley juxtaposes multiple narrative and visual styles to create a highly entertaining yet moving vision of the Ramayana. Musical numbers choreographed to the 1920's jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw feature a cast of hundreds: flying monkeys, evil monsters, gods, goddesses, warriors, sages, and winged eyeballs. A tale of truth, justice and a woman’s cry for equal treatment. Sita Sings the Blues earns its tagline as "The Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told."

New York Times

WHAT do a 3, 000-year-old Sanskrit epic, a ’20s-era jazz singer and Indonesian shadow puppets have in common? They’re all part of the eclectic cultural tapestry that is “Sita Sings the Blues, ” an 82-minute animated feature that combines autobiography with a retelling of the classic Indian myth the Ramayana, and that required its creator, the syndicated comic-strip artist Nina Paley, to spend three years transforming herself into a one-woman moving-picture studio.

BBC World News

Sita Sings the Blues is an interpretation of the ancient Indian epic Ramayana. It tells the story of the warrior prince Rama and his relationship with his wife Sita, who he rejects, breaking her heart.

WIRED

Nina Paley's Sita Sings the Blues, which makes its North American premiere Friday at the festival, tells two parallel stories: the ancient Hindu epic the Ramayana and the breakup of Paley's 21st-century marriage.

★★★★★ Beautiful, funny, tragic, unique - a must see!

An incredible film, often funny, sometimes heartbreaking, always entertaining. I was impressed that such totally different elements - a tragic Hindu epic, a failed modern marriage, a 1920's blues singer and an eclectic assortment of animation styles - could all blend together so seamlessly. A must see!

★★★★★ Amazing depth

A film of amazing emotional depth , Sita Sings the Blues is not merely animated personal mythology. The film combines the creative talents of cartoonist Nina Paley with a selection of (what are now) standards from the 1920's Blues singer Annette Hanshaw (think Bessie smith without the lugubriousness) and some honest pictorial rendering of the Indian myth "The Ramayana".

★★★★★ Above and beyond the "blues"

Highly recommended! Invite friends over for a fun viewing and powerful discussion. Enjoy!
