Members-Only Screening: Upstream Color

posted by MKE Film on April 10, 2013

Your April members screening film is the Sundance award-winning film…Upstream Color.

Hailed as “heart-stoppingly beautiful, quite literally overwhelming,” by The AV Club’s Sam Adams, Upstream Color presents a stunning examination of human connections. This much-anticipated sophomore feature from director Shane Carruth (Primer, 2004) follows Kris (Amy Seimetz) as she struggles to piece her life back together after being drugged and robbed by a mysterious thief. As Kris begins her new life, she uncovers significant connections to other victims, as well as the natural world around her. With meticulous sound design and pristine cinematography (not to mention beautifully edited by MFF 2011 alum David Lowery, Pioneer), Carruth creates an immersive experience that will surely stick with you.

Remember in November when we told you Holy Motors would be a film unlike any you’ve seen before? Upstream Color tops that. Join us for this screening of what is already one of the most talked about films of the year, coming to you exclusively as a Milwaukee Film Member.

The screening takes place on Wednesday, April 24 at 7 pm at the Landmark Oriental Theatre. You’re probably going to want to talk about this film afterwards, so we invite you to join us back at Hotel Foster following the screening for a conversation lead by Programming Manager, Angela Catalano.

Please RSVP now: Space is limited and tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservation closes on Monday, April 22. (If you do not receive a reply to your RSVP, please call me at 414-755-1965 x204.)
