Film Independent Members, you and a guest are invited to watch A Cop Movie in our Film Independent Presents Online Screening Room, powered by Vision Media. A special pre-recorded conversation with director Alonso Ruizpalacios, moderated by film critic Carlos Aguilar, is included as part of this screening experience.
Director Alonso Ruizpalacios takes us deep into the Mexican police force with the story of Teresa and Montoya, together known as “the love patrol.” In this thoroughly original and unpredictable documentary, Ruizpalacios plays with the boundaries of nonfiction and immerses the audience into the human experience of police work within a dysfunctional system.
A Cop Movie will be available in select theaters October 20, then to stream on Netflix November 5.
2021, 107 minutes, color | Directed by Alonso Ruizpalacios | Featuring Mónica Del Carmen, Raúl Briones | Produced by Daniela Alatorre, Elena Fortes
