Opening Night film only-My Mexican Shivah
Director: Alejandro Springall Country: Mexico / USA, 2007 - Feature Duration: 98 min. Language: Hebrew / Spanish / Yiddish / English.

Set in Polanco, a Jewish quarter of Mexico City, "My Mexican Shivah" is a dramatic comedy about how the death of a man results in the celebration of his life. According to Jewish belief, from the moment a Jew is born, he or she is accompanied by two angels: an angel of light and an angel of darkness. When Moishe Tartakovsky, patriarch of his family, dies of a heart attack, he leaves behind a complicated web of secrets and relationships that become untangled over the course of his seven-day shivah. Which angel will win the battle for Moishe's soul? If the shivah reveals anything, it's that Moishe's family and friends loved him with all his flaws and mystery- and most of all his spirit. American director John Sayles serves as Executive Producer.
