Pickles hit Canal D!

Good news!

My latest documentary, Posthumous Pickle Party, about Montreal's beloved, now-defunct Simcha's Grocery on St. Laurent Blvd. will be playing on Canal D, Canada's French language all-documentary broadcaster.

If you can't speak a lick of French, don't get Canal D or want to see it on your own dang schedule, not to worry!...

Co-Producer Matt Zimbel and I are now selling DVDs of the quirky 46 minute-long film which yanks you by the pickle into Simcha's crammed 40 year old shop. See how he made his famous briny wonders. See the footage Melissa Auf der Maur took of Simcha just before he died. See if his secret recipe survives...

$22 including shipping. Simply email your DVD request to: ezra at pressuredrop dot com.

The film, which played at Pop Montreal and Les Rendez-vous du ciméma Québecois, stars Montreal klezmer/hip-hop sensation Josh 'Socalled'
Dolgin, food critic Barry Lazar, sculptor Stanley Lewis, Pop Montreal's Dan Seligman and many other members of Simcha's kooky and cukey coterie.

Pick up a DVD for yourself or one to share with your 'foodie' friends!
