Missing in Brooks County is the human story of immigration
policies at the U.S. southern border.
Eddie Canales runs the South Texas
Human Rights Center, but the messages left by strangers on his phone
speak more to his unofficial role as a private detective. In a rural
community where more migrants go missing than anywhere else in the
United States, families of lost loved ones call Eddie for help.

Bemiss, Co-Director/Producer, Missing in Brooks County
An intimate portrait examining the
impact of America’s war on drugs through three mothers attempting to
rebuild lives derailed by drugs and prison. Follow Tomika, Lydia, and
Amanda as they prepare to rejoin their families, regain the trust of
their children and combat stigmas associated with their incarceration.
The reporters with India’s only
all-female news network—take it upon themselves to cover their
country’s inequities with unflinching and intrepid determination.
These fearless journalists expose the country’s hardline nationalist
leadership, rape culture, and corruption that victimizes those
without voice or power.
The camera follows seniors through
the hallways and into the classrooms of a prestigious San Francisco public
high school as they compete to impress admissions officers at
elite universities. The students proudly own their identity as nerds and
tell their stories with candor and humor despite the stress.
