A Land Imagined Geregisseerd door Yeo Siew Hua
What Yeo evokes in A Land Imagined is a sense of limitless possibility literally stretching out to the horizon, even as the spectre of work—its accompanying threats of unemployment, injury, and exploitation—holds sway over a vast majority of the world’s population so that the title’s far-off land remains out of reach.

It’s a pro forma plotline, to be sure, but one that has a forceful undertow, an uncanny verisimilitude that owes something to the numerous non-actors that took part in the production.

Not all of the ensuing plot pieces ultimately fit together in a coherent way (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing), and Yeow’s dependence on the idea of land reclamation as a metaphor for Singapore’s uneven economic ascent is effective yet a touch heavy-handed (especially when one character explicitly spells it out). But on the whole, this is an impressive and provocative movie, likely to reward to repeat viewings.
