In partnership with Fox Searchlight, the Atlanta Film Festival is excited to offer this special advanced screening of I ORIGINS at the Plaza Theatre on July 15th at 7:30PM. This screening is open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis (see the event listing for details).
I ORIGINS, the second feature film from writer and director Mike Cahill, tells the story of Dr. Ian Gray (Michael Pitt), 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 (Astrid Bergès-Frisbey) who slips away from him. As his research continues years later with his lab partner Karen (Brit Marling), 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 every known to validate his theory.
