Midnight Family (2019)
“Midnight Family” (2019, Mexico, documentary, 90m, not rated)
In Mexico City’s wealthiest neighborhoods, the Ochoa family runs a for-profit ambulance, competing with other unlicensed EMTs for patients in need of urgent care. In this cutthroat industry, they struggle to keep their financial needs from compromising the people in their care.
The director spent 100 days over three years filming the family, with one camera in the front and one in the back of the ambulance.
Grand Jury Prize nominee at Sundance.
