    The story of Exodus is retold by Moses, Aharon, the Angel of Death, Jesus, and the director's own father. But there's another side to this story: that of the Goddess, humankind's original deity, who is resurrected in a tragic struggle with the forces of patriarchy.

    A musical comedy, tripped-out cartoon and insolent reading of the Book of Exodus all in one, SEDER-MASOCHISM defies definition.

    Like SITA SINGS THE BLUES, SEDER-MASOCHISM is almost impossible to describe. It is about Exodus, Patriarchy, and the Goddess; it has music; it is animated. The great thing about finally sharing the film is that I don’t have to explain it - now you can. If you like it, or even if you don’t, I hope you will talk about it.
