BEYOND BOUNDARIES: DARE TO BE DIVERSE Screening & Discussion Series Presents:
"Documented," a film by director, journalist, and undocumented resident of the United States,

"In 2011, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas outed himself as an undocumented immigrant in the New York Times Magazine. Documented chronicles his journey to America from the Philippines as a child; his public struggle as an immigration reform activist/provocateur; and his journey inward as he reconnects with his mother, whom he hasn't seen in 20 years. A broken immigration system leads to broken families and broken lives."
Beyond Boundaries is organized and curated by Communication Department Professors Ruth Goldman, Meg Knowles and Michael Niman and Jason Parker of the Office of Equity and Campus Diversity. "Documented" is sponsored by: The Office of Equity and Campus Diversity, The Communication Department,The Burchfield Penney Art Center, and Just Buffalo Literary Center. The film is free and open to the public.
