This animated film is available freely online and has been recommended by the excellent Dr. Jordan Peterson. It's quite beautiful in parts and the work of Nina Paley; it recounts events from the Book of Exodus: the opening music is wonderful!! And the film uses modern culture to develop the narrative, quite ingeniously. If you're Jewish it will make far more sense.

Here's a brief description of the film, which is found beneath the link:

Seder-Masochism, an animated musical, loosely follows the Passover Seder story, with events from the Book of Exodus retold by Moses, Aaron, the Angel of Death, Jesus and the director’s father. The film puts a twist on the traditional Biblical story by including a female deity perspective – the Goddess in a tragic struggle against the forces of patriarchy.

I watched the opening and it looks promising, and yes I enjoyed the music.
