Netflix’s “Trigger Warning,” starring Jessica Alba, is being filmed in several New Mexico towns, including Española, through October.  

The film’s production crew has used businesses and buildings in the last several weeks throughout Española to film scenes.

During the Sept. 7 Española Public Safety Committee Meeting, City Councilor Dorothy Valdez said she was concerned about how much water the production crew used while filming. 

“I guess they (the production company) were using the water hydrants to get the appearance of wet roads,” Valdez said. “And I would like to know what the movie is called and when it’s coming out.”

Española General Services Director Jeff Sargent said the crew was in town filming the week before the meeting, and had filmed all week, and into the weekend. He also said the production company was charged for the water and it paid.

“They were filming at the police station, in (Police) Chief (Roger) Jimenez’s office, as well as the detention center, in a couple of the cells,” Sargent said. “They finished filming on Sunday, on Paseo de Oñate.” 

The film is about a Special Forces officer who’s given ownership of her grandfather’s bar after he dies and she soon finds herself at odds with the gang responsible for his death. 

Aside from filming in Española, the production crew will also film in Lamy, Los Cerrillos, Madrid, Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Netflix has yet to announce a release date for the film.
