Shane Carruth’s Upstream Color is his next film after Primer


Shane Carruth is the filmmaker who brought us the wonderfully complicated time travel film, Primer, and helped out on Looper. I thought his next film was going to be A Topiary. Turns out that is not going to be his next one.

Instead his next film is called Upstream Color. Like Primer this one sounds like it will be one that needs repeated viewings.

Check out the synopsis:

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.

Sounds great and I haven’t got a clue what it means.

Carruth stars in the film alongside Amy Seimetz (“The Off Hours,” “Tiny Furniture,” “Myth of the American Sleepover,” “A Horrible Way to Die,” and “Alexander the Last.”)

We also have these three photos and the poster.
