Nina Paley is a longtime veteran of syndicated comic strips, creating “Fluff,” “The Hots,” and her own alternative weekly “Nina’s Adventures.” In 1998, she began making independent animated festival films, including the controversial and popular environmental short The Stork. In 2002, Nina traveled to Trivandrum, India, where she first read The Ramayana. This inspired her first feature, Sita Sings the Blues, which she animated and produced single-handedly over the course of five years on a home computer. Nina teaches at Parsons School of Design in Manhattan and is a 2006 Guggenheim Fellow.
