Competition: ‘Upstream Colour’ *closed*

From widely acclaimed US auteur Shane Carruth comes Upstream Colour (2013), a tentative sci-fi exploring the connection between nature and the human psyche, drawing on Henry David Thoreau’s Life in the Woods. Identity becomes an illusion as a man and a woman struggle to assemble the loose fragments of their wrecked lives. To celebrate the UK home entertainment release of Upstream Colour, we have THREE DVD copies of Carruth’s sophomore film to give away, thanks to Metrodome Distribution. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Kris (rising star Amy Seimetz) is abducted from a bar and forced to ingest a drug that renders her susceptible to persuasion. When she awakens from her trance she discovers that life as she knew it has fallen apart. After some time, she meets Jeff (Carruth) on a train, and soon realises she might not be the only one to have experienced this ordeal, and that something bigger is going on.
