The most highly anticipated and controversial film from Sundance 2013 comes to the Cinefamily for a very special sneak preview, with filmmaker/star Shane Carruth in person for a Q&A after the screening (moderated by Looper director Rian Johnson!) Every single quality of Upstream Color, Shane Carruth’s first feature in almost a decade after his smash debut Primer (winner of the 2004 Sundance Grand Jury Prize), will simultaneously push your emotional buttons and give your ganglia a thorough workout. The following synopsis of this push-pull theatrical happening’s sci-fi/love story/philosophical strands doesn’t even begin to reveal the film’s thousand-fold permutations: after finding her life destroyed by scam artists who drug her with a mysterious substance, Kris (Amy Seimetz) connects with Jeff (Carruth), whose past is similarly scarred; as their backstories bleed into one, they must wrangle a recovery from their shared chaos. “With its muscular cinematic language rooted in the powerful yearnings felt before words can be formed, Upstream Color is an entirely original, mythic, romantic thriller that goes in search of truths that lie just beyond our reach.” (Sundance)
Dir. Shane Carruth, 2012, digital presentation, 96 min.
