Casey Affleck’s directorial debut lands at Saban Films.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Saban Films has acquired the US rights to Light of My Life, which made its world premiere at this year’s Berlin Film Festival. 

Affleck directed from his own script and starred in the feature alongside Anna Pniowsky and Elisabeth Moss.

Light of My Life follows a father (Affleck) and child (Pniowsky) who journey through the outskirts of society a decade after a pandemic has wiped out half the world’s population. As a father struggles to protect his child at all costs, their bond, and the character of humanity, is tested.

”This has been a passion-driven project for the filmmakers, who have crafted a beautiful and sophisticated film, grounded with superb performances,” said Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley in a statement. We couldn’t be more honored to be part of such a dedicated team. Our audiences will fall in love with the intensity and sincerity of this character-based survival drama, focusing on a strong father-daughter bond.”
