Watch: Official US Trailer for Biohacking Thriller 'Origin' from Sweden
"I'm not going to let you die at all." An official US trailer has debuted for an indie Swedish sci-fi film titled Origin, based around "biohacking". As described on their poster, "biohacking" is the exploitation of genetic material (for criminal purposes). The film is about three students at a university who discover a way to make cells age slower. It's a film about "love, ambition and finding yourself." Starring Emelia Hansson, Rikard Björk, Rafael Pettersson and Sandra Redlaff. This film is made by friends of FS, Swedish filmmakers Andreas Climent & André Hedetoft, who made two shorts we've written about before: Logan and Double Trouble. Origin is their feature debut and their film will be available on iTunes as of next week. Take a look.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Andreas Climent & André Hedetoft's Origin, direct from Vimeo:
Ambitious science student Julia and programmer Rebecca are trying to make cells age slower. They are about to break new ground when they find out that Julia's boyfriend Erik has a terminal illness. As he gets worse and worse, they see no other option than to break moral boundaries. In secret they build a lab in their apartment and start experimenting - with Erik as a human guinea pig. At first they seem to have found a cure, but they soon discover that his cells show signs of unexpected side effects. Origin is both written & directed by Swedish filmmakers Andreas Climent & André Hedetoft, making their feature debut after a couple of shorts previously (Logan and Double Trouble). This first premiered at the Fantaspoa Film Festival. Origin will be available direct-to-VOD in the US on iTunes next week, as of December 13th.
