I have spent the past two years working a feature film. What began as a documentary on the undocumented immigrant experience in America evolved into a chronicle of my life, as the more universal I tried to make it, the more personal it became.
Documented, the end result, world premiered this past June at the AFI Docs Film Festival in Washington, DC. Indiewire named it "a film to watch for."
Tonight, in San Francisco, CA, Define American is co-hosting the west coast premiere of Documented with FWD.us, the immigration reform initiative led by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. It's an event I hope will elevate the conversation about immigration to another level, as technology, business, and political leaders join us and begin asking themselves the questions we've been asking through our campaign.
Stay tuned for more screenings this fall.
