CUNY is hosting a free screening of the film Documented on Wednesday, November 5th. Documented is a story about Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas who outed himself as an undocumented immigrant in a New York Times Magazine essay and testified at the Senate immigration hearings. The Order screening will be hosted by Purchase CUNY J-School’s Documentary Film Program followed by a Q&A with the director and journalist Jose himself via Skype and Sabrina Gordon, an adjunct faculty member at CUNY who co-produced and edited the film.
DOCUMENTED was released in theaters nationwide last May, and aired on CNN in June. The Hollywood Reporter and Indiewire recently mentioned DOCUMENTED as contender for the Oscar short list.
