In 2011, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas outed himself as an undocumented immigrant in the New York Times Magazine. The film 'Documented' chronicles his journey to America from the Philippines as a child; his journey through America as an immigration reform activist/provocateur; and his journey inward as he re-connects with his mother in the Philippines, whom he has been unable to see in person in 20 years.
Last fall, I had the opportunity to see the film at a special showing by Vargas in Sacramento. If you get a chance, see it.
