We are excited to present the Fall 2015 edition of the Leadership Film Series on Tuesday, October 27th at 4:45 p.m. (dinner starting at 4:30 p.m.) in the LBJ Student Center, room 3-15.1. We will be screening DOCUMENTED. This film chronicles the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas who 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.
This film presents a number of important leadership philosophies that can be applied to both emerging and established student leaders. Audience members will examine the importance of perseverance in establishing and revisiting goals, effective communication when mobilizing support to create change, recognizing and appreciating the importance of followers, and the value of leadership risks.
Check out the trailer for Documented below!
The Leadership Film Series provides an opportunity for students to watch movies which reveal aspects of leaders appearing throughout the history of cinema. Screenings are free and open to any member of the Texas State community.
