Among the stellar lineup of films that were announced for the upcoming 2013 Sundance Film Festival was the welcome news that Primer writer/director Shane Carruth’s new film Upstream Color is set to debut at the festival. Now the first teaser trailer for the follow-up to Carruth’s 2004 time travel pic has been released, and it’s appropriately intriguing. The short logline we have for Upstream Color describes the story thusly: “A man and woman are drawn together, entangled in the life cycle of an ageless organism.” This trailer doesn’t really elaborate on the film’s plot, but it does a hell of a job of teasing the wonderfully strange and perplexing world that Carruth has crafted.
Hit the jump to watch the teaser trailer. The film stars Shane Carruth, Amy Seimetz, Andrew Sensenig, and Thiago Martins. Upstream Color will premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in January, followed by a theatrical release on March 22nd.
