Amy Seimetz in 'Upstream Color'
A dazzling, enigmatic new trailer for Shane Carruth's Sundance entry "Upstream Color," which has also been selected for New Directors/New Films, has landed. The film is the director's first in almost a decade, following his sensational 2004 feature debut "Primer," which won the Alfred P. Sloan and Grand Jury Prizes at the Park City fest.

It was also announced today that "Upstream Color" will screen at the Berlin International Film Festival in February. Carruth will self-distribute the film via his company erpb in April. The director stars alongside Amy Seitmetz.

The trailer offers a plethora of arresting images and raises many questions. Here is the synopsis via Sundance:

Kris is derailed from her life when she is drugged by a small-time thief. But something bigger is going on. She is unknowingly drawn into the life cycle of a presence that permeates the microscopic world, moving to nematodes, plant life, livestock, and back again. Along the way, she finds another being—a familiar, 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.
