“OPENING NIGHT EVENT, Friday, September 10th at 7:30pm, featuring a post-film Q&A with co-director/producer LISA MOLOMOT and editor/producer JACOB BRICCA, along with a panel of local immigration policy experts! Presented by DocScapes, co-presented by UA School of Sociology, UA School of Theatre, Film and Television, Binational Migration Institute, Hanson Film Institute and UA College of Fine Arts.
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.
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).”
