Sita Sings the Blues

Lakshmi Phonograph

I’ve put off writing this post because I wanted to say something eloquent about Sita Sings the Blues, a free-culture movie masterpiece. I couldn’t muster eloquent, so I’ll make due.

Roger Ebert first turned me on to Sita. Sita is a modern take on the Ramayana on the feminist side with vocals by Annette Hanshaw. (I’m a sucker for cross-cultural mashups.) I like it. My girls like it. My youngest regularly requests the “Hindu god movie”.

So go watch it. It’s free!
