The Hamptons International Film Festival is almost here. A film that should be on your short list to check out is MIDNIGHT FAMILY.
In the World Cinema Documentary Category, MIDNIGHT FAMILY, from director Luke Lorentzen, is an incredibly wild ride with the Ochoa family, who operate a private ambulance. In Mexico City, the government operates fewer than 45 emergency ambulances for a population of 9 million people, spurning an underground industry of for-profit ambulances, many who have little or no certification or training. We tag along with the Ochoa family as they struggle to do the right thing for the patients they try to save while facing financial hardships and moral dilemmas along the way.
