Journalist and director of film "Documented", Jose Antonio Vargas (L), poses for a photograph in Los Angeles, Californa June 18, 2014. In 1993 at the age of 12, Vargas said goodbye to his mother and boarded a plane in the Philippines to join his grandparents in California. It would be four more years before he would learn that he was in the United States illegally. "Documented," the debut film of the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Vargas, who is still without the necessary papers, premieres on U.S. cable network CNN on June 29, 2014. It tells his story growing up and working as a newspaper reporter without legal status and without a path to reverse it. Picture taken June 18, 2014.
