Nina Paley ruffles more feathers

Where do you go after making a brilliant animation feature that unpacks the misogynistic assumptions in Hindu mythology, pissing off an army of humorless fundamentalist dopes in the process? How about something less controversial like, uh...the history of Israel?

(Trigger warning: Cartoonish depictions of extreme violence and genocide.) Scroll down for an explanation of "who's killing who", because, as Nina says, "you can't tell the players without a pogrom."

I really like the list of stuff at the bottom because she makes it clear she doesn't think she's an authority handing down holy writ.

If you've seen Sita Sings The Blues, you know this is going to be really good when it's finished.
