You Gotta Believe

Nina Paley brings us a new episode in her grand project Seder-Masochism, in which Moses is confronted by a slew of ancient goddesses. They sing "You Gotta Believe" by the Pointer Sisters, from the 1976 movie Car Wash. Paley is into experimental methods of animation (as we've seen in other posts), and this one uses gifs animated from still pictures.

The goddess gifs used are available here. You may recall Paley's other awesome musical sequences from the movie-in-progress, like Death Of The Firstborn Egyptians and This Land is Mine. The new one is quite a bit less gruesome. -via Laughing Squid
