Saban Films Acquires Casey Affleck’s Light of My Life

-

Saban Films has acquired U.S. rights to Academy Award winner Casey Affleck’s narrative feature debut, Light of My Life. Written, directed by and starring Affleck (Manchester by the Sea, Interstellar), the dystopian survival drama also stars breakout star Anna Pniowsky (PEN15) and Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale, Mad Men). Light of My Life made its World Premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival in the Panorama section.

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. “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.”

The film, fully financed by Black Bear Pictures, was produced by Black Bear’s Teddy Schwarzman and Affleck on behalf of Sea Change Media. John Powers Middleton also produced. The executive producers are Black Bear’s Michael Heimler and Ben Stillman, and Sea Change’s Whitaker Lader.

“On behalf of everyone involved in the making of Light of My Life, I’d like to thank Saban Films for their passion, commitment and support,” said Schwarzman. “Light of My Life has been a labor of love for the entire cast and crew, and we look forward to working with Saban to bring Light of My Life to audiences across America.”
