Sita Sings the Blues

Ancient history doesn’t have to feel like it. Nina Paley creates her own version of the ancient Indian text the Ramayana in her film Sita Sings the Blues. The animated musical provides an utterly original take on the story, both hilarious and deeply moving. The trailer below (today’s Video of the Day!) gives just a glimpse of Paley’s whimsical creation.

Sita Sings the Blues will be screened at Symphony Space February 7 and 14 at 5:30pm. Columbians can get tickets for just $7. More info here.
