Event Details

Winner of the Grand Jury prize at IFF Boston, Ernie & Joe follows two officers with the San Antonio Texas Police Department who are diverting people away from jail and into mental health treatment — one 911 call at a time. In the process, they are redefining policing and its mandate to “keep people safe,” while transforming the ways in which law enforcement across the U.S. can approach and help those who suffer from mental illness.

Director: Jenifer McShane
