Presented by the Toronto Jewish Film Society

(Mexico / USA, 2007, Alejandro Springall director, 98 minutes)
Outrageousness abounds as the family of the late Moishe prepare to sit shivah for him. 
Two angels, one symbolizing light and one darkness and invisible to all, observe the ceremony and bet on who will accompany Moishe’s soul to the afterlife. 
Meanwhile, his squabbling family has their own issues to deal with even as the man in charge of keeping the shivah kosher prepares to rip them off financially. 
An unusual comedy about Mexican Jewry, My Mexican Shivah is a delicious treat.
