Animation: Sita Sings the Blues by Nina Paley

I've been volunteering at the Cartoon Art Museum for a day now (I know... success! haha!) and the museum hosted an event to promote one of the animators they are currently exhibiting. The animator is Nina Paley and the movie they showcased was Sita Sings the Blues. It was amazing!! I was incredibly inspired. It's about an 1hr 20mins long and she animated it all by herself, even the colouring. I loved the combination of different animation styles to tell the story.

Interesting fact: There are two stories in the movie. The one taken place in the states is based on her life.
