On October 28th, Long Island Wins’ Welcoming Long Island initiative will host the very first Long Island screening of “Documented.” This critically acclaimed film chronicles the journey of Jose Antonio Vargas, a high-profile journalist who was placed in the national spotlight after revealing his undocumented status in a widely read New York Times article in 2011.
This powerful film confronts the audience with a question central to the immigration debate—what do we do about those men and women who are American in every way except status? Vargas’s story, which has been generating serious Oscar buzz, reminds us that those who reside in the U.S. without documentation are more like us than we realize.
Long Island Wins’ Welcoming Long Island initiative is proud to partner with Define American and St. Joseph’s College in Patchogue to bring this exciting, thought-provoking film to our community, as we continue to explore the complex question of how we Define American on Long Island!
A light supper will be available at 5:30 p.m.; the film will start at 6 p.m., followed by a Q&A..
