Jose Antonio Vargas' 'Documented' premieres Sunday on CNN

Documentary chronicles award-winning journalist's experience as a undocumented immigrant

In June 2011, Pulitzer Prize-winning Filipino America journalist Jose Antonio Vargas publicly revealed his status as undocumented immigrant in a New York Times Magazine essay, "My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant" -- which thrust him into the national conversation on immigration reform.

Jose's documentary Documented chronicles his experience as an undocumented immigrant and an activist for immigration reform. If you missed its short theatrical run in New York and Los Angeles, Documented makes its national television broadcast premiere CNN on Sunday, June 29 at 9:00pm and 11:00pm ET, and will air again on Saturday, July 5. Make plans, set your DVRs.

Here's the trailer:

Define American, Rappler, GuerreroYee, and NextDayBetter are launching a campaign to ignite meaningful conversations and action about immigration within the global Filipino community.

Watch parties are being hosted for Sunday's film broadcast and Rappler will be hosting a Google Hangout on Wednesday, July 2 on immigration reform and undocumented immigrants. The Hangout will feature Maria Ressa (CEO of Rappler), Jose Antonio Vargas (Pulitzer Prize Winner), Rio Guerrero (Community Organizer, Immigration Lawyer), and Akiko Aspillagas (Undocumented Filipino American and TED Speaker).
