“. . . a film that we thought had absorbing use of sound and incredible aural inventiveness. The U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Sound Design goes to Shane Carruth and Johnny Marshall for Upstream Color.

                                                       - Clare Stewart, BRITISH FILM INSTITUTE

            “Upstream Color - beautiful, poetic art”

                                                          - Joseph Gordon-Levitt


                                                    “intensely elliptical sight-and-sound collage”

                                                                                                        - Justin Chang, VARIETY


                        “a unique mind-bending achievement”

                                                                      - Jordon M. Smith, IONCINEMA    


“one of the most immersive soundscapes I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to in a film”

                                                                                                                    - Aaron Peck, HIGH-DEF DIGEST

Writer/director Alberto Roldan’s film “Everything & Everything & Everything” premiered internationally at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival and had its U.S. premiere at the 2014 Hamptons Internationl Film Festival.
