Living in the United States illegally for over 20 years, Miko Revereza takes the Amtrak train from Los Angeles to New York in this critical moment of hostility against migrants in the country he has come to know as home. The journey seems daring, perhaps reckless, yet urgent and necessary.
The UP Film Institute in partnership with Sentient Art Film and Los Otros invites you to a special screening of Miko Revereza’ No Data Plan, a documentary film that bagged the recent Art Award at the Sheffield Doc Fest 2019, on Oct 30, 2019 (Wed) 5 PM at the Cine Adarna of UPFI Film Center, UP Diliman. Get a chance to join the filmmaker in a Q&A session after the screening.
Admission is free and open to the public.
