As part of Immigrant Heritage Month, the Hispanic Cultural Center is partnering with Hispanic Organization for Progress and Education to bring you a watch party of the documentary film Documented and a follow-up discussion on Immigration.
About the film: 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 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. http://documentedthefilm.com/trailer
