Undocumented Writer’s New Film Screens At San Diego Asian Film Festival

GUEST

Jose Antonio Vargas, Filmmaker, 'Documented'

Transcript

Two years ago, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas first went public with his personal story about being born in the Philippines and living in the United States illegally.

He was a guest on this show back in 2011, after his essay came out in The New York Times.

Since that time, he's been an activist in support of people living in the U.S. without documentation.

Jose Vargas has now made a documentary about what it's like to be an American without having the papers to prove it.

"Documented" is currently featured at the 14th Annual San Diego Asian Film Festival.
