Mexico | 2019 | Luke Lorentzen
One of the most acclaimed and awarded documentaries of 2019 profiles the Ochoa family, who make a living (just barely) running a private ambulance service in Mexico City, where only 45 public ambulances serve a population of nine million. As emergency medical workers, the Ochoas spend many nights racing against the competition to reach those in need, then racing the sick or injured to the hospital. The movie is one wild ride. “Outstanding…You can’t look away.” -NY Times. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 81 min.
