Film: I origins, where the life and death meet the eye

"I Origins" is undoubtedly a film about the question of life after death, rebirth and the connection between different lives, nothing less than represented by the human eye.

The conflict between science and religion, fact and faith has been a starting point for great fiction for centuries. Mike Cahill, the writer and director of “I Origins,” is fascinated with where these seemingly opposed viewpoints might conflict, or perhaps more interestingly, intersect.

Can we be scientific and faithful? Can we allow ourselves to believe in forces beyond our control? Even as we live in a world increasingly fascinated with explaining how everything works? With “I Origins,” Cahill refers to this internal conflict, something we all deal with. How and where to find the balance in the spiritual and the rational, life and death, the scientific and the faithful, the common and the divine?


Deyja is an intercultural investigation into life and death. We share inspiration on endings, dying, death and loss. Tools for coping with (any type) of pain and loss. To support our personal proces of grief and mourning. We deal with questions such as “What happens when you die?”, “How to accept pain and loss in our lives?”, “How to give support to someone grieving” and “What happens after death?”
