Missing in Brooks County follows the stories of two families searching for their loved ones who went missing in the fields of Brooks County, Texas after crossing into the U.S. from Mexico.

“A crucial, empathetic and humane film that sheds light on the cruelty of United States’ immigration policies.” – Ricardo Gallegos, La Estatuilla

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. They also discover a sobering truth: the deadliest part of the journey was far from the border.  A gripping investigative documentary, Missing in Brooks County is also a deeply humane portrait of the human rights workers, activists, and law enforcement agents who confront the life-and-death consequences of a broken immigration system. (Dir. by Jeff Bemis & Lisa Molomot, 2020, USA, in English/Spanish with English subtitles, 81 mins., Not Rated)
