A father and his daughter roam the world after a strange pandemic has wiped out most of the world’s female population in Casey Affleck’s new psychological drama-cum-epic dystopia.

The Earth has changed and will never be the same. As we learn from random bits of news reports and newspaper headlines, most women on the planet have died after a strange pandemic. There are rumours of a few survivors hiding from society and female babies being artificially grown in China or California. In this postapocalyptic dystopia, a father is trying to protect his daughter from what seems to be the entire world.

Beautiful, melancholic, and haunting, Light of My Life does not fit easily into genre limitations. Like in John Hillcoat’s The Roadbased on a novel by Cormac McCarthy, or It Comes at Nightby Trey Edward Shults, the global disaster is but a background for a psychological drama. However, Casey Affleck seems to have taken it further: his film is a poetic meditation on coming-of-age and parental love. The film premiered at the 69thBerlin Film Festival.
