“Documented”: A Documentary by Jose Antonio Vargas


Every year San Diego holds what is know as the San Diego Asian Film Festival. The San Diego Asian Film Festival, or also known as SDAFF, was founded in 2000 and has grown to become the largest exhibition of Asian cinema in the western United States. 

This year marks SDAFF’s 14th year in existence. What makes this year so special is that FUSO is co-sponsoring the closing night film, DOCUMENTED. DOCUMENTED is a 90 minute documentary based upon Jose Antonio Vargas’ journey as an undocumented American. The autobiographical DOCUMENTED is one of the year’s most powerful documentaries not because it’s a compelling rags-to-riches tale, but because it’s the chronicle of a most unenviable process: Jose’s coming-out as an undocumented American, his shaky self-discovery as an activist and symbol, and perhaps most crushingly, his learning how to be a son to a mother he hasn’t seen since she let him go nearly 20 years ago.

The documentary will be held on November 15, 2013, 7:00pm at the New Central Library in Downtown San Diego. For more information, visit this link: SDAFF DOCUMENTED

Let this documentary not only spark your reactive tendencies but your active tendencies to stand up and help us make a change! Hope to see you all there!
