Did you miss the film Documented during The 19th Annual Asian American Showcase this past April? Fear not! Documented is returning to Chicago, only this time filmmaker and Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas will be in person for a Q&A session!
From Gene Siskel Center Website:
“Delicately woven from personal history and
political conviction, it is the product of a reporter’s
ear, a cinephile’s eye, and a memoirist’s vulnerability.”
–Matt Brennan, Indiewire
In 2011, successful, admired and at the top of his game in his profession, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas did the unthinkable: he revealed himself as an undocumented immigrant in The New York Times Magazine. DOCUMENTED questions the meaning of citizenship in a saga that charts Vargas’s efforts on behalf of other Americans like himself, brought to the U.S. as children, his passionate lobbying on behalf of the Dream Act, and his emotional journey to reconcile with his past history and his Filipino family. In English, Tagalog, and Spanish with English subtitles. DCP digital. (BS)
