I Origins
Filmfest 2014

Dr. Ian Gray is a molecular biologist studying the evolution of the eye. He finds his work permeating his life after a brief encounter with an exotic young woman who slips away from him. As his research continues years later with his lab partner Karen, they make a stunning scientific discovery that has far reaching implications and complicates both his scientific and spiritual beliefs. Traveling half way around the world, he risks everything he has ever known to validate his theory.

"Mike Cahill returns with a new, enthralling exploration of the connective tissue between love and science. ... As emotionally moving as it is intellectually stimulating, I ORIGINS solidifies Cahill's position as a distinctive cinematic voice."
