This Land is Mine is a animated musical short by artist Nina Paley that she describes as a “brief history of the land called Israel/Palestine/Canaan/the Levant.” A “who’s-killing-who viewer’s guide” is available at her website. You make a donation to the Question Copyright project (which “assist artists in creating and releasing works under free licences”) online. Paley is the project’s first artist-in-residence.
I envisioned This Land Is Mine as the last scene of my potential-possible-maybe- feature film, Seder-Masochism, but it’s the first (and so far only) scene I’ve animated. As the Bible says, ”So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”
