Writer/Director Mike Cahill first attended the Sundance Film Festival in 2011, where he and writer/actor Brit Marling premiered Another Earth. They won both the Alfred P. Sloan Prize and Dramatic Special Jury Prize for their science-fiction debut.
Both returned to the 2014 Festival, alongside Michael Pitt, with I Origins, which also won the Alfred P. Sloan Prize.
I Origins is an enthralling exploration of the connective tissue between love and science. Cahill utilizes Michael Pitt and Astrid Bergès-Frisbey’s onscreen chemistry to vigorous effect. As emotionally moving as it is intellectually stimulating, I Origins solidifies Cahill’s position as a distinctive cinematic voice.

I Origins opens in select cities Friday, July 18.
