Nina Paley is a brilliant animator/cartoonist whose work is simultaneously smart, beautiful, and provocative. She is probably best known for her epic video called Sita Sings The Blues. There’s nothing quite like her animation videos. This short film above, This Land is Mine, about the violence in Israel/Palestine over the past centuries is a fine example of her oeuvre.

How the hell did you ever find this?? It is so brilliant!! How profound she is with this and how moving!! Thanks, Jack!!
Thanks, Marilyn. Much of her animated work is on YouTube and she is also an anti-copyright activist, which is very interesting to me, because I have mixed feelings about that issue. I want to speak with her and find out more about it.
