Sita Sings The Blues

I’m auditing a Flash class this semester at SFCC, which is sorta exciting,
& it became a good reason to finally watch this entertaining 2D animation, which I’m glad I did.

This is an amazing movie made in Flash by Nina Paley, loosely retelling the Ramayana (an old Indian legend), while paralleling a modern day break-up story, & featuring the 1920s music of jazz singer Annette Hanshaw.  

The visuals are so beautiful, & Sita Sings The Blues was awarded “Best Animation” at the 2008 Santa Fe Film Festival.

You can watch it here at Reel 13. More Info About The Movie Here.

in Hettinger, North Dakota, U.S.A., with a wide assortment of objects from the homesteading days of the area (& a little beyond) to the near present, I did a few months volunteer work there a couple years ago, & have donated to the level of “sodbuster member” in the past
here one can find yesteryear cookware, dental instruments, hair dresser equipment, arrowheads, old fashioned children’s toys, a display about the Yellowstone Trail (Highway 12), Ford cars from the 1920s, portraits of many of the settlers of the area, political button pins from decades gone by, etc.
