Join Meaningful Movies in Kirkland for a pre-premier screening of MISSING IN BROOKS COUNTY, a Critic’s Choice Award nominee, official selection of the NYC Documentary Film Festival, and winner at the Hot Springs Documentary film festival. Follow the journey of two families who arrive in Brooks County to look for their loved ones, only to find a mystery that deepens at every turn.

We will be joined by producer and co-director Jeff Bemiss in our after-movie discussion to say a few words and answer any questions from participants. Please attend and tell your friends who might be interested in this movie and discussion as well.

“Migrants go missing in rural South Texas more than anywhere else in the U.S. For many families whose loved ones have disappeared after crossing the Mexico border, activist detective Eddie Canales is their last hope. Unlock the mysteries and confront the agonizing facts of life and death in Brooks County, 80 miles north of the border.”
