A note from the director:
has been a very personal labor for me in many ways because the story
is quietly philosophical. Our modern world is filled with scientific
and technological wonders, yet we remain fundamentally simple in our
belief about life, deities, and the hereafter. I wanted to convey
a different view of man's (or, in this case, a woman's) ascent towards
destiny...something foreign to any conventional religion. I
hope the film imparts a single moment of empathy for Ayden, and a
sense that the viewer is not simply racing towards death, but imagining
a glimpse of infinite possibilities and an eternity in front of them.
orthogenesis was also an experiment: I wanted to see how far we could push the envelope making a solid script on a low budget, using new, relatively affordable cameras and technology without sacrificing production value; walking that inevitable filmmaking tightrope between exposition and revelation in telling the story.
I miss you already,
