The comedy: the group of actors he has hired turns out to be even more neurotic than him.
On Saturday night February 8th, - "Ernie and Joe: Crisis Cops, an intimate portrait of two San Antonio, Texas police officers who are helping change the way police respond to mental health calls. The film takes audiences on a personal journey, weaving together the officers experiences during their daily encounters with people in crisis.

This special screening will be attended by director Jenifer McShane who will present the film and facilitate a Q&A immediately following the film.
