CineMingle: My Mexican Shiva
Mexico, 2006, 102min, Hebrew/Spanish/Yiddish (English subtitles) Director Alejandro Springall

When the exuberant patriarch of a Mexico City family dies of a heart attack in the middle of a raucous mariachi party, he leaves behind a complicated web of secrets that must be untangled over the course of his seven-day shivah. In this sly and charming dysfunctional-family drama, the comically unraveling shivah will bring those he left behind to account for themselves.

Director Alejandro Springall commissioned renowned Mexican Jewish writer Ilan Stavans to come up with a story set in Mexico City's small but vibrant Jewish community (in a city of 18 million, there are fewer than 20,000 Jews), which was published as the novella Morirse est en hebreo (Dying in Hebrew). Springalls colorful adaptation is an affectionate, tearful party thats hard to leave.
