Assignment 10538  Sita Sings the Blues  Ramayana Movie

1) Summarize the plot of the movie.
2) What does the movie present about being an exemplary brother (of Rama) and follower of the avatar (i.e. Hanuman)?
  If you watch “Sita Sings the Blues,” instead discuss the overlap of oral discussions with the depiction of the Ramayana. Why do the creators of this movie seem to do this?  I encourage you to hone in on a specific scene of the group orally discussing the plot or characters.  
3) Discuss in some detail the cartoon representation of the Ramayana. What did you find unique and interesting about how this movie presented the epic.  Explain.
