This is the full movie.

Sita Sings the Blues is an AUDIENCE-FUNDED PROJECT released under a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike License.

"Sita Sings the Blues" is based on the Hindu epic "The Ramayana". Sita is a goddess separated from her beloved Lord and husband Rama. Nina Paley 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 Ramayana. Set to the 1920's jazz vocals of torch singer Annette Hanshaw, Sita Sings the Blues earns its tagline as "the Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told." It is written, directed, produced and animated by American artist Nina Paley.


What? You hate watching movies on your computer? You can BUY THE DVD! Or a t-shirt, or a pin.

A tip o' the pants to Roxy for telling me about this film.
