Documentary highlights private Mexican ambulances

“Midnight Family” follows the Ochoa family in Mexico City, who run an ambulance company in a city where only 45 government-run ambulances serve 9 million residents.

A Sundance Film Festival documentary highlights Mexico City’s overburdened EMS industry and the private ambulance companies that work to help the city’s residents.

The Wrap reported that “Midnight Family” follows the Ochoa family’s private ambulance company. The documentary’s creator, Luke Lorentzen, rides along with Fer Ochoa, his two sons and other crew members as they try to survive in the industry consisting of tough restrictions, unregistered ambulances and issues with police.
