I love everything about Nina Paley’s take on the Ramayana, which she has re-envisioned from the view of Rama’s long-suffering wife, Sita, whom Paley feels was given short shrift. She’s matched each episode to an Annette Hanshaw song, which gets my first thumbs-up, and subsequent thumbs go to the character design, animation, and wit of these pieces. Truly terrific stuff – I’ll be buying the DVD when she’s finished all the chapters.
