Synopsis

Two families arrive in Brooks County, Texas to look for their loved ones who went missing after crossing into the country from Mexico. On their search they meet vigilante ranchers, human smugglers, humanitarian activists, and Border Patrol agents, all of whom are locked in a proxy version of the national immigration debate. A gripping investigative documentary, Missing in Brooks County is a portrait of a place that confronts the life-and-death consequences of a broken immigration system.

This digital screening includes a moderated filmmaker conversation that will be on demand with the film. Participants to be announced soon!

Captioning and ASL will be provided for this virtual showing and conversation.
