In 2011, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas risked his career by sharing a personal secret: He outed himself as an undocumented immigrant in an essay published in The New York Times Magazine.
His new film, Documented, is a powerful and poignant chronicle of his journey to America from the Philippines as a child; his journey through America as an immigration reform activist; and his journey inward as he reconnects with his mother, whom he hasn’t seen in person in over 20 years.
Q & A with special guest Jose Antonio Vargas following the screening. A reception will follow the discussion.
