It’s been a while since we’ve seen new animation from Nina Paley, director of one of the finest animated features of the past decade, Sita Sings the Blues. She released This Land is Mine yesterday. The short offers “a brief history of the land called Israel/Palestine/Canaan/the Levant.”

Nina envisioned the piece as the last scene of her feature film project Seder-Masochism. The status of the feature is unclear, but at least we have this stand-alone short complete with a convenient guide to who’s killing who.
