About the Film:
Directed by Jose Antonio Vargas and Ann Lupo. 2013. USA. 90 mins. English, Spanish, Filipino with English subtitles.
In 2011, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas outed himself as an undocumented immigrant in an essay published in the New York Times Magazine.
Documented chronicles his journey to America from the Philippines at age 12; 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 more than 20 years. This inspiring film confronts a critical issue that could not be more timely.
Winner: Audience Award, AFI Docs Film Festival; Audience Award for Best Documentary, Hawaii International Film Festival
