Cartoonist-turned-free-culture-activist, Nina Paley, got a lot of attention when her animated film Sita Sings The Blues (2008′s best animated film and perhaps even the best of the 21st century, in my humble opinion) failed to clear the rights to very crucial music and was released for free download under Creative Commons.
It’s a wonderful example of art-turned-activism, and Paley’s newest, a project she’s calling Seder-Masochism, might end up falling into the same circumstance. Paley just released “the last scene” of the “potential-possible-maybe feature film” and it’s perfectly Paley: funny, bloody and flawlessly scored.
BONUS! If you haven’t already, pleasepleaseplease watch Sita Sings the Blues. I promise you won’t regret it.
