Missing in Brooks County follows the stories of two families searching for their loved ones who went missing in the fields in Brooks County, Texas. A gripping drama, it 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.

A panel discussion moderated by Dr. John Mckiernan-González, Director of the Center for the Study of the Southwest, will immediately follow the film screening. Panelists will include:
  • Lisa Molomot, Co-director and producer of "Missing in Brooks County."
  • Jeff Bemiss, Co-director and producer of "Missing in Brooks County."
  • Dr. Kate Spradley, Professor of Anthropology and Director of Operation Identification at Texas State University.
  • Eddie Canales, Founder and director of the South Texas Human Rights Center in Falfurrias, Texas.
