DREAM WEEK: Pulitzer Prize Winning Journalist Jose Antonio Vargas.
In 2011, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas outed himself as an undocumented immigrant in the New York Times Magazine. Please join the Mason DREAMers and Mr. Vargas as we screen his new film DOCUMENTED.
Mr. Vargas 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, whom he hasn't seen in 20 years.
