Documentary Feature | Mexico | 2021 | Spanish | 107 minutes

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