Asia Society, Museum of Tolerance present a special screening of Jose Antonio Vargas’ ‘Documented’

docu 1

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.

Asia Society and the Museum of Tolerance invite you to a special May 7 screening of Documented, celebrating the launch of the film’s Los Angeles theatrical run, from May 9 to 15 at the Westwood Landmark Regent Theater. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Mr. Vargas, including a question and answer session. Executive Producer and Asia Society Southern California board member Janet Yang will be in attendance.
