Kris is derailed from her life when she is drugged by a small-time thief. But something bigger is going on. She is unknowingly drawn into the life cycle of a presence that permeates the microscopic world, moving to nematodes, plant life, livestock, and back again. Along the way, she finds another being—a familiar, who is equally consumed by thelarger force. The two search urgently for a place of safety within each other as they struggle to assemble the loose fragments of their wrecked lives.

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. 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.

“‘Upstream Color’ is a stimulating and hypnotic piece of experimental filmmaking.” - Variety

“Intense and hypnotically powerful, and a more intimate and moving film than ‘Primer.’ ‘Color’ is somehow at once emotionally direct, while narratively abstract.” – Los Angeles Times

“A dramatically obscure, technically brilliant experiment in speculative fiction from Shane Carruth.” – Hollywood Reporter

““Bold, impassioned, ecstatically beautiful…in a class by itself at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.” - Village Voice
