From psychological dramas celebrating kick-ass female directors, life-affirming stories of Holocaust survival, to pondering the next agricultural revolution, Kismet films will take you on a journey through wildly different worlds, BUT they all have something pretty special to say and something pretty important to talk about.

Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Ava DuVernay, ORIGIN chronicles the tragedy and triumph of Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Isabel Wilkerson as she investigates a global phenomenon of epic proportions.

Portrayed by Academy Award nominee Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor (“King Richard”), Isabel experiences unfathomable personal loss and love as she crosses continents and cultures to craft one of the defining American books of our time. Inspired by the New York Times best-seller “Caste,” ORIGIN explores the mystery of history, the wonders of romance and a fight for the future of us all.
