In 2011, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas outed himself as an undocumented immigrant in an essay published in the New York Times Magazine. Documented chronicles his journey to America from the Philippines as a child; his journey through America as an immigration reform activist; and his journey inward as he re-connects with his mother, whom he hasn’t seen in person in over 20 years.

The Stones Cry Out: Voice of the Palestinian Christians
In the presence of the filmmaker Yasmine Perni

stones cry out

In May 2014 Pope Francis made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. His visit brought renewed attention to the need for a just peace in the Land of Peace. This part of the world lies at the core of the religious history and beliefs of the three great monotheistic religions. What is life like in the Holy Land for Christians today, particularly those who are the descendants of the first people who believed in Jesus’ message? These communities, while shrinking in population under the pressures of military occupation—Christians comprise only 2 percent of the West Bank’s population today—continue to practice their faith and maintain the holy places that are vitally important to fellow believers throughout the world. All are invited to join filmmaker Yasmine Perni for a free, public screening of her film The Stones Cry Out (www.thestonescryoutmovie.com) followed by discussion.
