NAME OF FILM: NO DATA PLAN
DIRECTOR(S): Miko Revereza
GENRE: Documentary Film
SYNOPSIS: A cross-country journey from Los Angeles to New York—captured in images of transit zones and passenger-train interiors—serves as the backdrop to this highly personal reflection on the experience of undocumented people in ICE-age America. In his film, riveting in its spareness and attention to banal detail, director Miko Revereza pairs off-hand, observational images of colorless non-places and flat, empty landscapes with stark subtitles that unfold the fraught story of an affair between his mother and a much younger man. These disembodied voices summon images and memories of the Philippines, his family’s country of origin.
