The Children of Israel's liberation from slavery, Pharaoh's court, the burning bush, ten plagues... A dream journey, brought to life in colorful clay animation! "A funny and sophisticated film for young and old alike." This telling of the Passover story explains the Jewish people's liberation from slavery in lively, creative claymation. The film, narrated by a twelve-year old named Danny, begins at a modern-day family Seder complete with parents, grandparents, and siblings. Very quickly, the family is transported to ancient Egypt, a land where the evil Pharaoh, enthroned in the middle of a very sandy desert, performs wicked deeds in colorful ways. They ? and we ? witness reenactments of the burning bush, the ten plagues, and other events, along with clever depictions of ancient Egypt itself, a land of swaying pyramids and wily men. The Animated Haggadah takes its young viewers on a journey into the mysterious past to explain the mysteries of the present, and shows Jewish history in a unique form.
