Alonso Ruizpalacios’ inventive, genre-bending documentary takes us deep into the Mexican police force. Following family tradition, Teresa and Montoya join the force, only to find their convictions and hopes crushed by a corrupt system. Through an experimental style of narrative and documentary storytelling, A COP MOVIE propels the viewer into an unusual cinematic world, giving voice to one of Mexico and the world’s most controversial institutions. Playing with the performative boundaries of nonfiction, A COP MOVIE immerses the audience into the challenges of police work within a dysfunctional system.
