Let There Be Light

Young Slovakian director Marko Skop’s 2015 debut feature, Eva Nova, won the Fipresci Award at the Toronto Film Festival and was selected as the Slovak entry for the 89th Academy Awards. He now brings us Let There Be Light, an impressive drama that offers an inside perspective on Slovakian society. Milan, a long-absent father who has been working in Germany, returns to find out that his teenage son is in trouble. As the investigation deepens into the death of one of his son’s classmates, Milan realizes that he doesn’t actually know his son at all. Not only that, he begins to discover troubling truths that he hasn’t picked up on until now.
