Over the last decade, thousands have gone missing in Brooks County, Texas, just north of the Mexican border. In an attempt to circumvent the state’s busiest immigration checkpoint, countless migrants have ventured into the vast ranch lands that surround the area… and many have never been seen again. The haunted landscape of Brooks County is littered with the bodies and belongings of an unknown number of lost souls. All the while, the national immigration debate drags on, rarely taking into account the very real life and death consequences that are felt in the farmlands of Brooks County and elsewhere. And on both sides of the border, heartbroken families are left devastated, desperate to find out what happened to their disappeared loved ones. An illuminating and harrowing documentary film journey, MISSING IN BROOKS COUNTY follows two of these families as they search for answers. As their mysteries unfold, the severity of this broken immigration system becomes more and more apparent. And once you see the reality of these hidden horrors, you won’t be able to look away. (In English and Spanish with subtitles) — G.S.
