Ernie & Joe

SUPPORT

A graceful and empathetic look at a new kind of police force, Ernie & Joe is a moving portrait of two Texas police officers who are helping change the way police respond to mental health calls.
The film takes audiences on a personal journey, braiding together experiences during Ernie and Joe’s daily encounters with people in crisis. These are not your everyday cops; dressed in polos and jeans, brandishing no weapons, they sit down with distraught and potentially violent people to talk. They listen. They take their time. Ernie and Joe are doing the work and walking the walk. Amid heightened scrutiny of police-community relations, and deepening understanding of mental health issues, Jenifer McShane’s documentary offers proof of an enlightened way forward and is testament to the profound impact of this unique approach (Dir. by Jenifer McShane, 2019, USA, 96 mins., Not Rated)
