Join CitySquare for the Screening of the Movie, 'Documented'

On June 26, CitySquare's Urban Engagement Cinema will present a free screening of Antonio Vargas' documentary 'Documented'. The movie which tells the story of the Pulitzer Prize winning author also relates the challenges of what it means to be an undocumented immigrant in the United States. Without papers, without status and without citizenship, hiding in the shadows, Vargas 'outed' himself and began a journey as an activist and provacateur challenging a system grown increasingly hostile toward those who are harshly (and incorrectly) referred to as 'illegal aliens'.

 

This is an issue that grows increasingly important since  U.S. Representative Eric Cantor lost his seat purportedly over the issue of immigration. Will Congress have the heart and will to take up the issue of a sensible, sane immigration policy or is it dead in the water for 2014 and quite possibly 2016 as well?

Join us at the Angelika Theater  5321 E Mockingbird Ln #230, Dallas to watch this riveting story...
