Description

Co-directors Saul Williams and  Anisia Uzeyman deliver a compelling and completely singular vision in their feature debut, a queer Afro-Futurist musical shot and set in Rwanda. Neptune Frost follows the parallel journeys of two characters: Neptune, a young intersex hacker destined for transition (played by two actors over the course of the movie) and Matalusa, a coltan miner grieving his brother’s untimely death. The world they traverse is visually and sonically striking, a dreamy landscape full of repurposed technological objects where members of a hacker collective clash with an oppressive police force known as “The Authority.” Driven by the music created for Williams’ 2016 concept album MartyrLoserKing (another iteration of this multi-disciplinary project) Neptune Frost is a queer, anti-colonial, anti-capitalist allegory  full of poetry and possibility.
