Watch: First Intriguing Trailer for Shane Carruth's 'Upstream Color'
"I was born with a disfigurement where my head is made as the same material as the sun." Whoa. Take a look at this! The very first teaser trailer for Shane Carruth's highly anticipated Sundance 2013 premiere Upstream Color has debuted. This is an out-of-nowhere debut for a film that we didn't expect to see much more from until Sundance, but wow, does it look very… perplexing is the perfect word. This has a bit of an Inception vibe, but it smacks of complete originality in only the way Carruth of Primer can deliver. I love the score and the mystery, it's going to be quite a fun premiere in January. I can't wait to see it! A must watch.
The synopsis for Upstream Color included in the Sundance announcement states: "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." The cast includes Amy Seimetz, Shane Carruth, Andrew Sensenig and Thiago Martins. This was officially announced as an in-competition film to premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah this January. Distributor ERBP has also set a March 22nd, 2013 theatrical release date for Upstream Color. We'll keep you updated on this as much as we can.
