Origin

Locally produced scifi – how often do we get the chance to serve this delicacy at LIFFF? We are so very proud to finally be able to do that with Origin in our program. This locally produced sci-fi movie twirl us into a story about nothing less than bio-hacking and is Andreas Climent and André Hedetofts’ debut feature.

When Ambitious science student Julia and programmer Rebecca are trying to make cells age slower and are about to break new ground they find out that Julia’s boyfriend Erik has a terminal illness. As he gets worse, they see no other option than to break moral boundaries to find a cure. In secret they build a lab in their apartment and start experimenting – using 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. They have managed to enhance the body’s properties. But what at first seems like something fun and exciting turns out to be far more dangerous than they ever had imagined…
