Nina Paley: This Land is Mine

Wednesday, 21. November 2012, 0037h No comments

The US cartoonist, animator and cultural activist Nina Paley (* 1968) produced the animation short film “This Land Is Mine” as part of her project “Seder-Masochism” about the Exodus. This mean little film can also be seen as a more than fitting comment to the most recent fighting in Israel and the  Gaza Strip. More information about the people shown in the film can be found on Nina Paley’s blog, or, to quote the artist: “Because you can’t tell the players without a pogrom!”

Krieg will include some 60 of his works, including his impressive 11m-long frieze that had only been on show in two exhibitions in the USA and France.
