I’ve been a fan of Nina Paley’s animations for a long time, and her Sita Sings The Blues is one of my all-time favorite films. Her newest feature Seder-Masochism has now been released to the public domain, and is available for free streaming on Vimeo, as well as for full HD download on the Internet Archive.

Seder-Masochism, an animated musical, loosely follows the Passover Seder story, with events from the Book of Exodus retold by Moses, Aharon, the Angel of Death, Jesus and the director’s father. The film puts a twist on the traditional Biblical story by including a female deity perspective – the Goddess in a tragic struggle against the forces of patriarchy.
