ROTTERDAM 2019: A LAND IMAGINED BY YEO SIEW HUA AND NON-FICTION BY OLIVIER ASSAYAS
By Aldo Padilla
Locarno winner Yeo Siew Hua’s A Land Imagined, poses two stories that play in parallel, with a disappeared Chinese migrant and the case investigator. The tale is somewhat similar in structure to some Murakami novels: with several unanswered questions, the shadow of a manic pixie dream girl, a sort of mirror between the characters of the two stories and some elements that get near the supernatural or the oneiric.
