Director: Shane Carruth
Director Carruth follows on the promise of his 2004 debut PRIMER with this jaw-dropping slice of high-concept sci-fi.
After a woman is drugged and robbed by a petty thief, she finds herself drawn to a mysterious man who seems to share her life memories. The film follows the intertwined fates of this couple as they fall in love and struggle to comprehend the machinations of a god-like figure in the wings, whose motivations may be benign or malevolent.
Part meditation on love and memory, part engrossing mind-bender in the tradition of the very best of science fiction, UPSTREAM COLOR is one of the most original and distinctive films of the year.
