Film Crew Members Robbed, Assaulted On Set


Film crew members were robbed and assaulted on set in Mexico City, Mexico.

Film crew members were assaulted and robbed crew members of Alfonso Cuarón’s new movie in Mexico City, according to Deadline.

According to reports, police said a group of people approached the film crew on a downtown street and identified themselves as code inspectors. Police said that “after an exchange of words, there was an altercation.”

From Deadline:

“While members of our production team were working at the location of José María Iglesias Street in the Tabacalera community with official permits from the Film Commission of Mexico City, they were assaulted by workers of the Cuahutémoc District,” reads the letter, which was translated from Spanish. “It was not a ‘simple fight’ like the authorities have reported, it was assault and there were people injured: Two women were hit; five of our crew members were taken to the hospital; and phones, wallets and jewelry were stolen.

“After we filed the complaint, the response of the District was immediate and positive,” the letter from Espectáculos Fílmicos El Coyúl continues, “We hope that the district authorities will keep their promise and help compensate for the stolen items, as well as bringing those responsible to justice.” Read the full letter below.

The untitled movie is Cuarón’s first feature film to film in Mexico since his 2001’s Y Tu Mamá También. The Oscar-winning Gravity filmmaker new feature film centers around a middle-class family living in Mexico City during the early 1970s.
