Sita Sings the Blues – The Ramayana gone psychedelic

25 Feb

Sita Sings the Blues is a 2008 animated rendition of the great Indian epic The Ramayana, written, directed, produced and animated by American artist Nina Paley.

Hinduism has always had a distinct psychedelic style, but The opening sequence, which is like an animated introduction to Hindu mythology, definitely brings Hinduism even closer to it’s psychedelic days of Soma.

This second clip, from the middle of the film, also has a nice psychedelic touch.

If you liked this, you can watch the full movie (in better quality) here on YouTube.
