As the national debate over immigration policy simmers to a boil, its practical consequences are felt every day in Brooks County, Texas. Located 70 miles north of the border with Mexico, it is the site of an estimated 3000 deaths since 2008, as migrants try to circumvent the state's busiest interior immigration checkpoint and find themselves lost in the vast private ranch lands that surround it. A pre-recorded, post screening discussion with filmmaker Jeff Bemiss and protagonists Michelle Chinos and Kate Spradley, moderated by Ricardo Sandoval-Palos, will be available in addition to the film.
