sita sings the blues
[Rama, Hanuman and Sita]
In the hindu epic Ramayana, Sita is stolen and taken to Sri Lanka. Rama enlists Hanuman the monkey god and his army to make a bridge to the island to rescue her. An epic story of love among the gods. One of my favorite bits from Slumdog Millionaire is the appearance of the blue god Ram with his bow and arrow.
From the site —
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 e-mail. 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.”
