DISINTEGRATION 93-96 is an essay film about the Filipino American undocumented experience, retracing connections between 90s home movie nostalgia, post-colonial identity, and the disintegration of traditional family models. DISINTEGRATION 93-96 is a pop-culture meditation on hyper-consumerism and cultural erasure. Filmmaker Miko Revereza problematizes the personal questions linked with global implications, specifically the act of recording a film document without the possession of living documents.

At turns callow and visionary, this collection of short works is poised to inspire, surprise, and delight. — Abraham Ferrer
