Dir : Nina Paley 3.35’/2013 / Music
A quick animation film on the history of Palestine.
Nina Paley’s new “potential-possible-maybe-feature film” project is Seder-Masochism, and she’s posted a clip called “This Land Is Mine,” which she envisions as the final scene of the movie. “This Land Is Mine” is a history of the Holy Land and all the blood spilled over the years by various parties who laid claim to it. Her web page for the short features a full cast of characters, with historical notes, and, of course, the wonderful video itself.
Nina Paley is an American cartoonist, animator and free culture activist. She directed the animated feature film Sita Sings the Blues. She was the artist and often the writer of comic strips Nina’s Adventures and Fluff, but most of her recent work has been in animation.
