Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Ava DuVernay, ORIGIN chronicles the tragedy and triumph of journalist Isabel Wilkerson as she investigates the legacy of slavery in the systematic oppression of people across cultures, across generations and across the world. DuVernay's film puts Wilkerson at the center of the story to explore how she developed the eye-opening argument in her Pulitzer Prize-winning book, "Caste: The Origins of our Discontents." Starring Academy Award nominee Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor, ORIGIN honors its source material in service of a deeply emotional story of love and loss, and a fight for the future of us all.
