Seder-Masochism

When: Sat., Oct. 12 2019

This animated feature from director Nina Paley (Sita Sings the Blues) retells the story of Exodus with irreverent musical numbers that include songs from Louis Armstrong, Led Zeppelin and Gloria Gaynor. In the process, Paley takes aim at the patriarchal nature of Passover and adds a few "non-biblical goddesses" to the mix too. The movie screens at 8:40 tonight and at 6:30 tomorrow night at the Cleveland Institute of Cinematheque. Tickets cost $10, or $7 for Cinematheque members and students. (Niesel)
