Upstream Color
First screened in April 2013 / Most recently screened in August 2013
Director: Shane Carruth. Cast: Amy Siemetz, Shane Carruth, Andrew Sensenig, Thiago Martins, Jason Barnes. Screenplay: Shane Carruth.

Twitter Capsule: Rides the avant-garde edge, like Leviathan; front-loads most bracing stuff as fully as Place Beyond the Pines does.

VOR:   Carruth ventures out pretty far. Floats at times, falters at others, but originality distinguishes it. Sound, image, editing all push the limits.
