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. Set to the 1920's jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw, Sita Sings the Blues earns its tagline as "the Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told."

Normally, I'd delete a comment like the previous one just posted because it doesn't say Hi & is just an advertisement for the film Sita Sings the Blues.

But I won't delete it because FilmKaravan seems to be a valid and interesting web project ... and Sita Sings the Blues is a damn fine & delightful movie.

After finding it in Ebert's Best Animated 2009 (http://blogs.suntimes.com/ebert/2009/12/the_best_animated_films_of_200.html), I viewed the film for free via YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RzTg7YXuy34), but then rushed off to donate a bit at http://www.sitasingstheblues.com/. This kind of work—and this approach to "intellectual property rights"—needs support.

If you haven't seen Sita, just drop everything and do it right now. Then do the right thing.
