.sita sings the blues.

Recently a lovely lady friend who blogs over at catnip and mint, turned me on to what looks like a fabulous film. "Sita Sings the Blues" is a loose retelling of the Ramayana, an epic Sankskrit tale. The filmmaker, Nina Parley, describes it as, "a tale of truth, justice and a woman’s cry for equal treatment." Anything that gets a little lady-love out into contemporary media sounds worth a watch to me. Not to mention the AMAZING-SAUCE songs featured in the movie from '20s singer Annette Hanshaw. And did you see how rad the animation style is?! Ms. Parley is one talented ma'am. 

The best part? You can watch the entire thing for FREE right here on the interwebs. FREE for REALSIES.
