NEON has unveiled a captivating new trailer for “Origin,” the highly anticipated project helmed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Ava DuVernay. The visionary director, celebrated for her impactful storytelling and thought-provoking narratives, takes audiences on a mesmerizing journey with her new film.

“Origin” is a powerful and poignant film that delves into the global phenomenon of caste, shedding light on its dark influence on society. Inspired by the New York Times best-seller “Caste,” the narrative follows a dedicated journalist, portrayed by Academy Award nominee Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor (“King Richard“), as she embarks on a compelling journey to investigate the roots and consequences of this deeply entrenched social structure.

In the pursuit of truth, the journalist faces unfathomable loss, mirroring the profound impact caste has on individuals and communities. However, amidst the shadows of despair, “Origin” uncovers the transformative beauty of love and the indomitable human spirit. As the protagonist navigates the complexities of history and society, the film weaves a tale of resilience, hope, and the enduring power of the human connection. The film not only explores the mystery of history and the insidious nature of caste but also celebrates the wonders of romance as a source of strength and solace.

Co-starring Jon Bernthal, Niecy Nash-Betts, Emily Yancy, Finn Wittrock, Victoria Pedretti, Jasmine Cephas Jones, Isha Carlos Blaaker, Vera Farmiga, Audra Mcdonald, Connie Nielsen, Blair Underwood, Nick Offerman, Stephanie March, and Myles Frost, the film has been called ‘Monumental’ and ‘Essential’ by renowned critics.
