Moments after writer/director/star Shane Carruth’s new film, Upstream Color, was reported as one of the films premiering at Sundance 2013, the first images, poster and synopsis from the picture were made available. Carruth’s previous film, the mind-bending Primer, won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance 2004. Our brains have had eight years to heal from the time-traveling plotline, so we should be ready for another go-round with Carruth. But prepare yourselves, Upstream Color sounds like it’s anything but mainstream. Hit the jump for the synopsis, images and poster.
Here is the synopsis for Upstream Color, followed by the images:
A man and woman are drawn together, entangled in the life cycle of an ageless organism. Identity becomes an illusion as they struggle to assemble the loose fragments of wrecked lives.
