Announcing The NHdocs Online Screening Series

A new documentary feature, the second weekend of every month!

NHdocs & IRIS – Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services present:

MISSING IN BROOKS COUNTY

Screening ONLINE Friday, November 13th through Sunday, November 15th, 2020

“It’s the largest cemetery in the United States.“ – Sheriff Benny Martinez on Brooks County, Texas

Just 70 miles north of the Mexican-US border is a haunting place. Stuck between the jurisdiction of border agents, local law enforcement, and cartels, Brooks County, Texas, is a barren landscape designed as a deterrent to illegal crossings. Despite this tactical designation, the municipality lacks the resources to process the remains of thousands of undocumented immigrants and the numbers keep rising. Missing in Brooks County follows the journey of two families who arrive in Brooks County to look for their loved ones and find a mystery that deepens at every turn. A gripping documentary drama, it is also a deeply humane portrait of the human rights workers, law enforcement agents, and activists who come face to face with the life-and-death consequences of a broken system.

NOTE: this screening also includes a Q&A with Missing in Brooks County directors Lisa Molomot and Jeff Bemiss, moderated by Chris George, executive director of IRIS.
