Indie Lens Pop-Up: Missing in Brooks County
Event Date and Time: January 12, 2022 7:30 pm
Tickets and Reservations
More migrants go missing in rural South Texas (Brooks County) than anywhere else in the U.S—it’s estimated to be the location of 3,000 deaths since 2008. The documentary film, “Missing in Brooks County,” chronicles families whose loved ones have disappeared after crossing the Mexico border, and community activist Eddie Canales is often the last hope to try to bring those missing back home. A film by Jeff Bemiss, Lisa Molomot and Jacob Bricca, #BrooksCountyPBS
Talkback to follow with Jeff Bemiss, Co-Director/Producer, Missing in Brooks County and Eddie Canales South Texas Human Rights Center.
