From A24, comes Kogonada's (Columbas) Cannes Un Certain Regard After Yang. When his young daughter’s beloved companion (an android named Yang) malfunctions, Jake searches for a way to repair him. In the process, Jake discovers that life that has been passing by in front of him, reconnecting with his wife and daughter across a distance, he didn’t know was there.
Visually gorgeous, with a sleek futuristic gloss, After Yang belongs to that select class of science fiction films that promise genre pleasures as a way to draw us towards a rich field of philosophical complexity. An inquiry into cultural and ethnic identity, the lures of lifestyle and the nature of the self and memory, it’s a film of captivating elegance and gentle wit, with Farrell further exploring the seam of frazzled bemusement that he first opened up in The Lobster .
