My Mexican Shivah

My Mexican Shivah

Set in Polanco (a Jewish quarter of Mexico City), family and friends sit shivah for their beloved patriarch Moishe, forcing them to confront each other - including a Catholic ex-lover, an Orthodox ex-convict grandson and a troupe of mariachi musicians. MY MEXICAN SHIVAH is a hilarious comedy about how the death of a man results in a celebration of his life.

"Unpredictably and frequently hilarious!" - Jewish Week
"Reminds us that ritual can ease reconciliation, and that sometimes even meat and dairy can get along!" - The New York Times
