This Land Is Mine

I just caught (months late) this amazing animated short by Nina Paley, who made one of the greatest animated films I've ever seen, Sita Sings the Blues. This is a powerful, witty short that really doesn't flinch from what it has to say. Paley envisioned this as the final scene of another feature, but has shared this online and I am so glad she has. She's even got a handy visual aid on her blog.

It's not like this qualifies for the Oscar, but this is another short that I think shows you the amazing talent that is out there working on animation and that sadly gets ignored in favor of things like that Maggie Simpson short.
