Primer (2004) Shane Carruth of

Science Fiction. Practically made with bread again (its budget was U.S. $ 7,000), and tells the story of a group of four engineers working on a project in parallel with its work, and that should work, promises to change the fate of humanity. The narrative is at times so complex that (spoiler alert) one can use this infographic from Wikipedia to better understand the film.
