Tropic Cinema is pleased to be one of 24 screening partner venues selected for the 21/22 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers. Our series continues with Maisie Crow’s acclaimed “At the Ready.” Home to one of the region’s largest law enforcement education programs, students at Horizon High School in El Paso train to become police officers and Border Patrol agents as they discover the realities of their dream jobs may be at odds with the truths and people they hold most dear.
“At the Ready,” along with a 30-minute recorded Q&A with the filmmaker, is available as a free, virtual-only screening from September 26-29, or in person at the Tropic on September 26 or 28. Click the links above for in-person tickets or virtual screening registration; virtual viewers can enjoy the film and discussion anytime during the four-day viewing window.
