Seder-Masochism April 8, 2020

I didn’t manage to share Nina Paley’s movie “Seder-Masochism” in time for Passover when I first learned about it. This year I hope it brings some comfort and hope to those celebrating in ways that are not what they would have hoped for nor are accustomed to. I first encountered Paley’s delightful creative work through her musical adaptation of the Ramayana, “Sita Sings the Blues.”

More about the Passover-related as well as the earlier project below!

Hollywood Reporter asks why this Passover movie is different from all other Passover movies. I also learned there’s a book to go with the movie:
