Come celebrate Portland Pride at EJC with our screening of Shiva Baby! Shiva Baby is like being trapped at the most awkward family reunion imaginable, except it's not your family, and you can't stop watching the chaos unfold. The film tosses you headfirst into a shiva where Danielle, a bisexual college student with more secrets than a soap opera, encounters her sugar daddy and ex-girlfriend among the mourners. It's a recipe for disaster deliciously baked to perfection, with every cringe-worthy moment seasoned just right for maximum discomfort.

Shiva Baby is a masterclass in how to craft a comedy of manners that feels like a thriller. With its razor-sharp wit and excruciating tension, it's like watching a juggler at a circus, except the balls are potential catastrophes waiting to happen. It's hilariously unsettling, brilliantly acted, and uncomfortably relatable. Watch the trailer.
