DISINTEGRATION 93-96 is an essay film about the undocumented Filipino American experience, retracing connections between 90s home movie nostalgia, post-colonial identity, and the disintegration of traditional family models.

A pop-culture meditation on hyper-consumerism and cultural erasure. Filmmaker Miko Revereza problematises the personal questions linked with global implications, specifically the act of recording a film document without the possession of living documents.
