Origin Trailer

"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:

Origin Trailer

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.

Interesting. Kind of a Bio-Flatliners?

I actually haven't seen Flatliners, but heard the comparison before!

Definitely check it out! It was a cool 80's flick with Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon and a Baldwin. Had one of the coolest posters from the 80's!

Nothing special as an idea, but I like Scandinavian cinema. So, I might give a go ...
