OT: Sita Sings the Blues

This is off-topic for the course, but I thought some of you might find it interesting.

From boingboing :

Nina Paley's brilliant -- and troubled -- animated short "Sita Sings the Blues" will air on PBS. This is the critically acclaimed short film that blends Hindu traditional stories with jazz-era music, whose distribution has been stopped by an unforeseen copyright claim on some of the 1920s music that is integral to the film.

Check out some of the links in the BoingBoing article if you want to learn more.

  2. Good link indeed. A nice funny perspective. Also a gist of main plot of the epic Ramayana in about 90 seconds.
