SHANE CARRUTH: PRIMER/UPSTREAM COLOR
January 06 only
On the strength of just two incredibly intimate, intricate and idiosyncratic feature films in ten years, writer/director/actor/composer Shane Carruth has undeniably established himself as an auteur on the bleeding edge of science fiction.
SHANE CARRUTH WILL JOIN US LIVE VIA SKYPE AFTER PRIMER AND BEFORE UPSTREAM COLOR TO DISCUSS BOTH FILMS!
PRIMER – By day, a group of small engineers work for a large corporation, and at night they unwind by conducting extracurricular experiments in their garage. While tweaking their latest project, they accidentally discover it has some highly unexpected capabilities…ones that may enable them to do and gain anything they conceive. Taking advantage of this opportunity will be the first challenge they face. Dealing with the consequences could be their last. 7:15pm
UPSTREAM COLOR – Kris is derailed from her life when she is drugged during a home invasion, drawing her into the unbreakable cycle of a mysterious presence that permeates the microscopic world. Along the way, she finds another being – a familiar man, who is equally consumed by the larger 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. 9:30pm
