Documentary Film “Missing in Brooks County” Steals the Show at Multiple Film Festivals
The compelling human rights documentary, Missing in Brooks County, chronicling the humanitarian crisis along the US/Mexico border, has been a great success across the country ever since its release. Just in the past few months, the film has won Best Documentary Feature at the Thin Line Documentary Film Festival, and Best Documentary Feature and Best In Fest at the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival, to name a few awards.
Among other accolades, the film also received a glowing review from The Boston Globe stating: “… the filmmakers tell the stories with restraint, emphasizing the injustices, cruelty, and suffering without needless, manipulative exaggeration.”
Of course, the largest point of pride is the film having influenced Senators Kamala Harris and John Cornyn to introduce rare bi-partisan legislation, the Missing Persons and Unidentified Remains Act, providing substantial humanitarian and technical aid, passing the full Congress unanimously on December 31, 2020, and becoming new law.
Congratulations to everyone associated with this important film, including our very own attorneys, Michelle Lamardo, and Heidi Reavis, who was also an executive producer of the film.
