Drinking in the very best that Montreal’s multicultural Mile End has to offer, Chaimie and Leizer, best friends and debating adversaries, tackle life, love, and lactose intolerance in this foodie-centric shorts series done entirely in their grandparents’ Yiddish.
Eli has written, composed and produced in various capacities for dozens of projects ranging from award-winning horror musical films screened and distributed internationally (including the recently Magnolia released Stage Fright starring Minnie Driver and Meat Loaf and the Sundance cult short film The Legend of Beaver Dam) through to touring musical comedy productions and live comedy shows (including the fringe hit J.O.B. The Hip-Hopera).
