Ernie & Joe
- This event has passed.
Ernie & Joe is an intimately and effectively crafted vérité documentary, following two Texas police officers administering new approaches in dealing with the mentally ill; challenging the typical methods of attending to these often vulnerable members of society. Weaving the officers’ encounters with those experiencing mental health crisis with their own personal lives, the film observes their humane approach to those they meet in the line of duty, whilst giving insight to the strain of their vocation. A masterful social commentary, the film is empathetic and thought-provoking and a compelling reflection on this rarely analyzed issue. RG
