Event Dates: 
04/15/21
The WUD Film Committee and the Havens Wright Center for Social Justice are again partnering to bring a series of social justice-oriented films to the UW-Madison campus community this Spring. Our lineup this year features three full-length films and one shorts program, focusing on subjects like childcare, immigration, and environmental issues. Almost all of these screenings are accompanied by discussions with the director, allowing the audience to discuss the topics of each film more in depth and to learn more about the film-making process.
 
You can request a screener of the film by filling out the Google form included in the Facebook events and Union Event Calendar posting for each film. A link to the film will be sent to your email shortly, but the film will only be able to be viewed during the specific screening window. The Zoom link and password for discussions will also be available in these descriptions.
 
MISSING IN BROOKS COUNTY (2020)
 
Screening Window: All day Wednesday, April 14th and Thursday, April 15th

Missing in Brooks County follows the stories of two families searching for their loved ones who went missing in the fields of Brooks County, Texas. A gripping drama, it is also a deeply humane portrait of the human rights workers, activists, and law enforcement agents who confront the life-and-death consequences of a broken immigration system.
