Presented in the Un Certain Regard selection at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, the film will be visible this summer on the big screen.
After the series Pachinko on Apple TV+, the director Kogonada returns with another family drama, on the big screen this time, After Yang. Shown for the first time during the 74th Cannes Film Festival in the Un Certain Regard selection, it will be visible in cinemas from July 6.
We find there Hake Farrel as a father, living in the near future, where each household has a domestic android, called “techno-sapiens”. In Jake’s family, he is called Yang, and more particularly watches over the young Mika, ensuring for this little adopted girl of Chinese origin, a role of tutor, friend, confidant. Also, the day Yang breaks down, Jake puts his whole life on hold to try to fix it. But the course will turn out to be much more complicated than expected, and will put Jake to grips with dizzying existential and intimate questions.
