This film now screens for the full duration of the festival, 25-31 Jan
“Mama has two phone numbers. We do not talk about immigration on her Obama phone. For that we use the other number with no data plan.” In his accomplished first feature, undocumented filmmaker Miko Revereza depicts a train journey he took across America in 2018. Utilising a potent mix of discreet recordings, sound design, on-screen subtitles and Instagram stories, the film successfully reflects its maker’s lived experience, but also that of the millions of other marginalised people whose every movement is similarly imperilled. Both scintillating observational study and politically charged personal documentary, No Data Plan is a travelogue of an altogether different kind.
Presented in partnership with LUX Scotland.
English, Tagalog with English subtitles. Closed Captions available.
