My Mexican ShivahGarrett Popcorn will be at Calumet Park (located at 9801 S. Ave. G) tonight before sunset to hand out bags of The Chicago Mix to movie goers.

The Latino Cultural Center will be showing Morirse está en Hebreo (My Mexican Shivah). The passing of a Mexican Jew whose appetite for life was stronger than his spiritual discipline makes for a difficult set of funeral arrangements in this comedy from filmmaker Alejandro Springall. Moishe (Sergio Klainer) was a happy-go-lucky guy living in Mexico City’s Jewish quarter until the day he died — appropriately enough while dancing at a party for a local Hebrew theater troupe. While Moishe was a man with plenty of friends, most of the folks he left behind to arrange his funeral don’t have much good to say for him.
