Indie Lens Pop-Up: Missing in Brooks County

Mon, 01/24/2022 - 6:30pm - 8:30pm

As the national debate over immigration policy simmers to a boil, its practical consequences are felt every day in Brooks County, Texas. 

Join WXXI for the first screening of a new season of Indie Lens Pop-Up, a neighborhood series that brings people together for film screenings and community-driven conversations. 

WXXI presents Missing in Brooks County, followed by a panel discussion on Monday, January 24, 2022 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at The Little Theatre. The event is free and open to the public. Missing in Brooks County follows the journey of two families who have come to Brooks County to look for their loved ones who went missing. As they search for answers, they encounter a haunted land where death is a part of everyday life. A gripping documentary mystery, it is also a deeply humane portrait of the law enforcement agents, human rights workers, and activists who come face to face with the life and death consequences of a broken system.
