Just 70 miles north of the Mexican-US border is a land haunted by ghosts. Brooks County, Texas is a barren landscape designed as a deterrent to illegal crossings, but people continue to attempt to cross, and many die trying. The municipality lacks the resources to properly deal with this sad reality, and the numbers keep rising. Multiple locals proffer contrasting opinions as two families search for their loved ones, and the toll of an unsustainable immigration policy is laid bare.

Included with the screening ticket is an exclusive pre-recorded Q&A with Director/Producer Lisa Molomot, subjects Omar Roman-Gomez and Dr. Kate Spradley immediately following the film.

Co-presented in partnership with DOC NYC.
