Sita Sings the Blues

20080219_rama.jpg

Nina Paley made an entire animated movie herself — and it looks amazing. The blurb:

Sita is a goddess separated from her beloved Lord and husband Rama. Nina is an animator whose husband moves to India, then dumps her by email. Three hilarious shadow puppets narrate both ancient tragedy and modern comedy in this beautifully animated interpretation of the Indian epic Ramayana.

The trailer is terrific. Reminds me just a bit of We Are the Strange in its mash-up of styles — except way more coherent.

Nina Paley’s been documenting the process all along, apparently, on her blog. Too cool.
