VENUE: Cinema of the Dam'd
on Saturday 13 April 2019
Cinema of the Dam'd is honored to participate in the SOTU Festival. This year's theme is "infinity," so we're showing Shane Carruth's sublime sci-fi puzzler UPSTREAM COLOR (2013).
Kris (Amy Seimetz) is kidnapped and hypnotized by a thief who forces her to ingest a mysterious parasite, before taking all of her money. A year later, her life in tatters, Kris meets Jeff (Shane Carruth), a fragile young man with whom she shares a secret bond. Shot for just $50,000, Shane Carruth's low budget experimental feature is a beautiful and unsettling puzzle box of a film, unlocking new mysteries with each startling image. Harnessing the paranoia of a conspiracy thriller with the intimacy of an indie romance, Carruth crafts a metaphysical horror film about the problem of free will. The film's haunting images, and its provocative ideas are likely to fascinate and frustrate you, long after the lights come up. Watch the trailer: https://youtu.be/wyOcoykomFY
