Invisible City is directed by Tan Pin Pin, one of Singapore’s best known filmmakers. She directed the critically and commercially acclaimed Singapore GaGa as well as the multi award-winning Moving House. She now turns her camera to the subject of memory.
Invisible City chronicles the ways people attempt to leave a mark before they and their histories disappear. From an avid amateur film director trying to preserve his decaying trove of Singapore footage to an intrepid Japanese journalist hunting down Singaporean war veterans, Tan Pin Pin draws out doubts, hopes and the ordinary moments of these protagonists who attempt immortality. Through their footage and photos rarely seen until now, we begin to perceive faint silhouettes of a City that could have been.
