Set incident[edit]

On November 3, 2016 it was revealed that the crew was robbed on set during filming.[2] According to the studio "two women were hit, five crew members were hospitalized, and cellphones, wallets, and jewelry were stolen" during the attack.[3] The crew reportedly arrived to set up filming for the day when a group of city workers approached the crew and tried to shut down filming. The crew stated they had permission to film, but the workers persisted and a brawl broke out between both groups.


Netflix will distribute the film.[4] It will screen at the New York Film Festival on October 5, 2018.[5]
