In 2027, the government enforces a revolutionary law that disables all tech devices at sundown in order to enhance civilians' well-being. Erin O’Connor directs ‘half-light,” a patient, future-fiction character study that observes a young woman amidst this tech-free world. We encounter the 20-year-old woman, Einstein, shifting from moment to moment during her day. She embraces a carbon-neutral lifestyle, harvests some window-sill-grown vegetables, links with a friend, observes some peculiar waterfront activities, and then makes a stop at the cemetery. Between these scenes from her day-to-day, O’Connor departs to some more experimental territories—we watch an interview with an old woman and a fictional conversation between two journalists discussing this “half-light” imposed society. Although a socio-political commentary can be inferred, O’Connor’s world building and commentary remain complex. -JM. Writer, Director, Producer: Erin O’Connor.
