Five Questions for <i>Upstream Color</i> Director Shane Carruth

In 2004, Shane Carruth took adventurous moviegoers on a mindbending trip through time and space with Primer, his absurdly low-budget debut feature about a group of engineers who create a time travel device that, inevitably, causes all manner of trouble. Frequently included on lists of the all-time great time travel movies (as well as lists of cult movies you have to see), Primer made its fans eager to see what Carruth was going to do next. Almost a decade later, the writer/director has returned with his follow-up, Upstream Color, another intricately made sci-fi tinged feature that's had people buzzing since it premiered at Sundance in January. Instead of waiting around for a distributor, Carruth is releasing the movie himself. On Friday, April 5, Upstream Color will open in limited release followed quickly by a VOD and DVD release. Carruth spoke with us about returning from his long absence and why he wants his films to be more than just "a book that you can watch."
