A Land Imagined is a realistic neo-noir about invisible migrants who are responsible for Singapore’s construction projects. When a worker called Wang dies under mysterious circumstances, the weary detective Lok searches for a possible cause. He discovers the dark side of Singapore’s building boom, where low-paid migrants have few rights and live in cramped conditions in small rooms. In their little free time they dream of a better life and look for ways to make their harsh life bearable. Yeo Siew Hua’s impressive debut film shows how some worlds can exist side by side without ever encountering each other.
