Teaser Trailer: Ava DuVernay’s ‘Origin’ [Starring Aunjanue Ellis]

Isabel Wilkerson‘s best-selling book, ‘Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents,’ is getting the movie treatment thanks to EMMY Award-winning director Ava DuVernay.

Transforming the narrative into a personal story reflective of the author’s experiences, the film – titled ‘Origin‘ – was also written and produced by DuVernay and stars EMMY and Academy Award nominee Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor as Wilkerson, a researcher exploring the caste systems in America, Nazi Germany, and India to find that all are “linked.”

The forthcoming film also boasts big names like Jon Bernthal, Niecy Nash-Betts, Blair Underwood, Finn Wittrock, Jasmine Cephas-Jones, Vera Farmiga, Audra McDonald, Nick Offerman, and Connie Nielsen among its star-sudded cast.

Ahead of its late 2023 premiere, see the official teaser inside.
