Marina Antunes [Celluloid 12.13.12] scifi drama



I'm as excited as the next person for Shane Carruth's long awaited follow-up to Primer but all of the excitement is solely based on his first film because I can't, for the life of me, figure out what Upstream Colour is about.

The description is vague, something about two people "entangled in the life cycle of an ageless organism." What does that even mean? Is it about eternal life? Will it be a lower budget version of The Fountain? This is all pure speculation. At this point the only people that know what the movie is about is Carruth and the programmers who booked it for Sundance. It's easily one of the most buzzed about titles of the festival and no one knows what it's about. Now that's impressive.


Hopefully we'll learn more in a few weeks time but for now, take a look at a second, slightly longer but equally cryptic trailer.
