‘Upstream Color’ Gets a Full Trailer, Director Shane Carruth Will Self-Distribute

ERBP

Following the first two enigmatic teasers for the film, Shane Carruth has released the first full trailer for his sophomore effort, ‘Upstream Color,’ which he’s also announced he’ll self-distribute.

Shane Carruth hasn’t released a film since his debut feature, ‘Primer,’ back in 2004, which makes ‘Upstream Color’ kind of a big deal. We were in love with the first two teasers released for the film, but this full trailer really seals the deal. It’s not much less mysterious than the previously footage, though it does give us a better handle on the characters, played by Amy Seimetz and Carruth.

The official synopsis, via the LA Times:

A young woman (Amy Seimetz) is abducted and seemingly brainwashed via an organic material harvested from a specific flower. She later meets a man (Carruth) and after the two fall for each other, they come to realize he may also have been subjected to the same process.

The film premieres at Sundance this month and Carruth told the LA Times that he plans on self-distributing the film via “Cable VOD, iTunes, Amazon, YouTube, Hulu, Xbox, Sony Entertainment Network, VUDU and Netflix and DVD/Blu-ray” — so like, every platform there is. ‘Upstream Color’ premieres at the IFC Film Center on April 5, followed by a 20-market platform release, and then in May we’ll see it hit streaming via the platforms mentioned above.

Until then, check out the new trailer:
