smARTfilms Series: Festival Winners - “Sita Sings the Blues” (2009)

This animated comedy/musical features Sita, an Indian goddess separated from her beloved husband Rama and Nina is an animator whose real-life husband moved to India and divorced her by email.

BIMA’s smARTfilms Series: Festival Winners presents “Sita Sings the Blues” (2009), Winner of the Berlin International Film Festival and Nominated for the Independent Spirit Awards

Sita is an Indian goddess separated from her beloved husband, Rama. Nina is an animator whose real-life husband moved to India and then divorced her by e-mail. Three hilarious shadow puppets narrate both the ancient tragedy and Nina’s modern conundrum in this beautifully animated interpretation of the Indian epic “Ramayana”. Both Roger Ebert and A.O. Scott gave the film 100% critical rating. Ebert called it “astonishingly original” and Scott claimed it “dazzling… affecting, surprising and a lot of fun.”
