Trailer for Missing People.

While she was an art student in the winter of 1978, Martina Batan’s younger brother Jeffrey was killed in Queens, New York, and the crime was never solved. Over 35 years later, Martina remains haunted by the unresolved case. While during the day she is director of highly successful art gallery Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, at night she can’t sleep—instead working on a Lego fortress, walking her dog and crocheting into the wee hours. In search of answers to her brother’s unsolved murder, Batan finally decides to hire a detective to try and solve the mystery. With the investigation ongoing, the film’s focus shifts to the other side of the enigmatic Batan’s life: an obsession collecting the work of Roy Ferdinand. A self-taught outsider artist from New Orleans, Ferdinand explored the underworld of violence in the African-American community in his graphic paintings and drawings. What unfolds in Missing People is Batan’s desire to understand Ferdinand’s life, which is perpetually linked with the ongoing mystery of her brother’s murder. Both threads perfectly converge in this engrossing examination of the effects of violence on the psyche.
