The current administration’s hard-line position on immigration has had a chilling effect on millions of undocumented people, turning schools, hospitals, and courthouses into potential sites of detention and deportation. In response, many immigrants are choosing to go further underground, while others are openly proclaiming their undocumented status at rallies, protests, and online.
Experimental filmmaker Miko Revereza falls into the latter category, exploring his identity as an “illegal alien” through his work. Revereza moved to the US from the Philippines as a child 25 years ago and has been living here ever since. During his current weeklong residency at Coaxial Arts Foundation, he’ll be archiving old home movies and video experiments, as well as creating new works: documents about undocumentation. Over the weekend, he’ll display the results in an installation appropriately titled “40 Hours of Illegal Labor.”
When: Opens Saturday, May 20, 7–10pm; closes Sunday, May 21, 4–8pm
Where: Coaxial Arts Foundation (1815 S. Main Street, Downtown, Los Angeles)
