OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
HBO Asia presents INVISIBLE STORIES, a compelling six-episode half-hour anthology drama that explores the triumph and tragedy of migrant workers living in Sungai Merah, one of Singapore's public housing communities.
Each thirty-minute episode dives into the struggles of an array of characters, ranging from a construction worker longing to create his own home, to an aspiring social media influencer willing to capture anything in exchange for fame, to a spiritualistic cab driver dealing with his own demons, and more. Equal parts gritty and tender, Invisible Stories dives into the less glamorous side of Singapore, providing a much-needed voice to the unsung pillars of the city. All six episodes will be available on MONDAY, AUGUST 3 in the U.S. and will be available to stream on HBO and HBO Max.
Golden Horse Award winner Yeo Yann Yann ('Wet Season' and 'ILO ILO') and Taiwanese newcomer Devin Pan appear in the first episode. Veteran Singapore actor Wang Yu Qing ('Hello From The Other Side' and 'Reach For The Skies') plays the taxi driver in the second episode.
Other cast members include Thai actress and model Suchada Muller ('Insect In The Backyard' and 'The Last Executioner'), Malaysian actor and director Gavin Yap ('The Bridge' and 'Lion Mums 3'), Bangladeshi actor Sudip Biswas ('Sutopar Thikana' and 'Café 999'), Indonesian actress Sekar Sari ('SITI'). Cast from Singapore include Regina Lim ('Not So Long Time Ago', 'Home Is Where The Heart Is'), Aden Tan ('Lion Mums' and 'Ah Boys To Men 3') and Sunny Pang ('Code Of Law' and 'Fly By Night') as well as Singapore based actress Rosalind Pho (HBO Asia Original 'Sent', 'Tanglin').
The series had its world premiere at the 2019 Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival, and had its first two episodes, INVISIBLE STORIES: LIAN and INVISIBLE STORIES: CHUAN showcased at the 2019 Singapore International Film Festival in November.
