Given the ever-expanding battle between those who trust science and those who believe in a supreme deity, I expect Mike Cahill's follow-up to Another Earth to raise quite a stir. In I Origins, a scientist experiences a phenomenon he can't explain with science — a crisis of faithlessness, if you will.
It doesn't appear that Cahill is proselytizing, which is good, and it's an interesting question to pose — it's so easy to imagine people losing their faith, given all the horrible things that happen on a daily basis, but what happens when a person of science gets presented with what appears to be evidence of a divine entity is much less explored.
The film premieres on July 18th.
