"Missing in Brooks County" takes home the award for Best Southern Documentary Feature at Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival.
HOT SPRINGS DOCUMENTARY FILM FESTIVAL JURY STATEMENT:
“We the jury are happy to present Missing in Brooks County with the 2020 award for Best Southern Feature. We were all moved by this thoughtful and immersive examination of the ongoing US/Mexico border crisis.
The film doesn’t get lost in the inflammatory rhetoric or political posturing that in many ways has dominated this important issue. Instead the filmmakers explore the human cost by placing us at the heartbreaking epicenter and putting us into the shoes of those most deeply affected. Missing in Brooks County is powerful, evocative, stunningly shot and deeply rooted in its South Texas setting.”
