“Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Ava DuVernay, ORIGIN explores the mystery of history, the wonders of romance and a fight for the future of us all. Inspired by the New York Times best-seller “Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents,” the acclaimed film chronicles the tragedy and triumph of Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Isabel Wilkerson as she investigates a global phenomenon of epic proportions. Portrayed by Academy Award nominee Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor (“King Richard”), Isabel experiences unfathomable personal loss and love as she crosses continents and cultures to craft one of the defining American books of our time.” - BronzeLens Film Festival of Atlanta
