Who’s Killing Who? A Viewer’s Guide


Death of the Firstborn Egyptians



Based on Exodus 12:

21 - Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover.

22 - And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.

23 - For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.

24 - And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever.

25 - And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which the Lord will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service.

26 - And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service?

27 - That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the Lord’s passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.

28 - And the children of Israel went away, and did as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.

29 - And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.

30 - And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.

Chris,

Those are great videos! - I was so impressed I went looking for Nina’s other work and spent 80 minutes watching “Sita Sings the Blues” - it is free to watch but I will buy a copy or make a donation. Very clever and talented woman!

Regards,
Phil.

Yes, a great way to present the folly of war.

Nina Paley is a great inspiration to me.

Like me, she dedicates all her works to the public domain, practices intellectual disobedience and is a copyright abolitionist.

I like her copyheart :heart: statement.

Copying art is an act of love.

People copy stuff they like. They don’t copy stuff they don’t like. The more a work is copied, the more valuable it becomes. Value isn’t taken away by fans, it is added by them, every time they copy.

And her Mimi and Eunice comic strips (especially the ones about IP).

She is also an artist-in-residence at questioncopyright.org. This site has a lot of great content, for example: The Surprising History of Copyright and The Promise of a Post-Copyright World.
