Sundance Festival introduction: Shane Carruth’s sensuously directed and much anticipated sophomore effort (his feature debut, Primer,
won the Sundance Film Festival 2004 Grand Jury Prize) is a truly
remarkable film that lies beyond the power of language to communicate
while it delivers a cohesive sensory experience. At the 2013 Sundance
Film Festival Upstream Color took home a Special Jury Award for
its Sound Design. 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.
Here is the trailer.
