About After Yang

When his young daughter's beloved companion—an android named Yang—malfunctions, Jake (Colin Farrell) searches for a way to repair him.

Alexander Weinstein, author of Children of the New World from which A24 adapted the story “Saying Goodbye to Yang” into this film, will be present for a Q&A after the screening and will also sign copies of his book.

"A mature, melancholic meditation on the odd transitional phase that humanity faces today—not quite fully digital, not nearly human enough." — Kevin Maher, Times UK

"Let's just flatly say: Kogonada is a genius." — Caryn James, BBC

"Colin Farrell’s central turn, a lovely, soulful study of melancholy, is one of his best performances to date." — Tara Brady, Irish Times
