Join us at The Loft Cinema for the Opening Night of Missing in Brooks County and find out why USA Today proclaims the film “one of the must-see documentaries of the summer.”
Co-directed by Jeff Bemiss and School of Theatre, Film & Television Adjunct Instructor Lisa Molomot, and edited and produced by TFTV Associate Professor Jacob Bricca ACE, the multiple award-winning documentary follows the stories of two families searching for their loved ones who went missing in the fields of Brooks County, Texas after crossing into the U.S. from Mexico.
Following the screening there will be a post-film Q&A with co-director/producer Lisa Molomot and editor/producer Jacob Bricca, along with a panel of immigration policy experts:
Daniel E. Martínez, PhD Associate Professor, School of Sociology and Co-Director, Binational Migration Institute, University of Arizona

Gabriella Soto, PhD Honors Faculty Fellow at Barrett, The Honors College, Arizona State University
Perla Torres Family Network Director, Colibri Center for Human Rights

A gripping investigative documentary, Missing in Brooks County 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.
Presented by DocScapes, co-presented by UA School of Sociology, UA School of Theatre, Film & Television, Binational Migration Institute, Hanson FilmTV Institute and UA College of Fine Arts.
