Les étendues imaginaires, un film des Films de Force Majeur

A Land imagined

DIRECTOR: Yeo Siew Hua
Length: 95 minutes | country: Singapore, France, Netherlands
YEAR: 2018

Police investigator LOK is tasked to look for a migrant worker after a lorry, belonging to a land-reclamation company, is reportedly missing. WANG, the said worker from China, had injured his arm at work and is made to drive the lorry. Anxious of risking repatriation, Wang becomes sleepless. He frequents a dreamy cybercafe for human connection, only to find himself further alienated. When a Bangladeshi coworker goes missing at the worksite, Wang uncovers dangerous company secrets. Soon, Wang goes missing too. Lok must now hunt down the missing migrants, to get at the truth, but is faced with bureaucratic obstacles from all sides. Uncovering leads that Wang had left at the cybercafe before his disappearance, Lok is led back to the reclamation site where sand builds –but also buries– dreams.
