The first feminist animated musical: Sita Sings the Blues by the American independent artist Nina Paley.
Sita is the princess who has been wrongly accused by her husband, but cannot live without him.
A silhouetted ensemble takes the Woody Allen-ish commentator part, and the jazz singer of 20s Annette Hanshaw narrates the eternal love mishaps of women.
Sita Sings the Blues won the Crystal D' Annecy in the celebrated animation festival, as well as a special mention in Berlin Film Festival in 2008.
After a long battle with copyright holders of Hanshaw's songs, Nina Paley decided to distributed Sita Sings the Blues free on the net, as part of the open culture project.
