In a near future, a family reckons with questions of love, connection, and loss after their A.I. helper unexpectedly breaks down.

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 the life that has been passing in front of him, reconnecting with his wife (Jodie Turner-Smith) and daughter across a distance he didn’t know was there.


The editing – which is also Koganada – offers wonderful elisions and punctuations that add compelling elements and draw you in without changing the gentleness of this film. Filmspotting

[Director Kogonada] finds a tonal balance that’s really difficult between being profound about the nature of existence, but also light and wispy and wistful at the same time. FilmWeek (KPCC – NPR Los Angeles)

Whether Kogonada intended it or not, After Yang plays like a profound film for the glass-half-full atheist, suggesting not only the preciousness and importance of life, but the ways in which it continues after our systems crash. The Reveal

[Farrell] treads the waters of wistfulness, compassion and devotion with an elegant ease. Globe and Mail

“After Yang” shows how easily the taste for beauty can be tainted, subverted, distorted, and abused by the powers that be. New Yorker
