FRANCE , Netherlands , Singapore | 95 minutes | 2018

Sleepless nights are the grim reality in this second outing by the Singaporean filmmaker. It all starts with an expat Chinese worker, incapable of sleep, who spends his nights in a strange cybercafé. When he disappears, an equally insomniac police officer takes charge of the case. Night after restless night, the investigation stagnates. This languid film takes the form of a waking dream lit by flickering neon, in the manner of Nicolas Winding Refn’s best films (Drive, Only God Forgives). A Land Imagined is an unexpected thriller about the heavy burden of solitude.
