It’s hard to fathom the scale of the healthcare crisis in Mexico City. MIDNIGHT FAMILY opens with the horrifying statement that the city of 9 million citizens is serviced by only 45 state run ambulances. This adrenaline-pumping documentary follows the Ochoa family, who operate as paramedics on the fringes of the health care system with their own private ambulance. Mixing edge-of-your-seat car chases with revealing glimpses of social and personal dynamics, director Luke Lorentzen has made a tender family portrait which is as exciting as it is socially conscious.
