Origin is a beautifully illustrated short animation directed by James Stacey that follows a young man on the brink of emigration and he attempts to leave home and the Irish recession and emigrate to Sydney.
As he races through the streets of Dublin, he feels the spirit of the land that he is leaving behind. He becomes connected to the soul of his environment and of the ancestors that came before him and the concrete buildings of Dublin morphs into the land of our origins and the spirit of his ancestors runs through him.
