Neptune Frost

1h 45m Musical, Sci-Fi, Arthouse 2021

AroView: Fusing the dual principle talents of American Saul Williams (director, writer, music) and Rwandan Anisia Uzeyman (co-director, cinematography), this is a thrillingly bizarre and beautifully ambitious Afro-futurist musical featuring images and music like you’ve never quite seen or heard.

The story set in a village in Burundi made of computer parts, and centers on the relationship between Neptune, an intersex runaway, and Matalusa, a coltan miner, whose love leads a hacker collective.

“Neptune Frost has a quality of few films: pure, authentic creativity. It can be overwhelming, mudding up the actual narrative of a movie that coasts around genres, topics, and emotions. It confuses more than it explains. But none of that matters. It always has something important to say and a powerful way to say it.” ~Michael Frank, The Film Stage

“A powerful film, clean and digestible while it traffics in metaphors and deploys poetry and philosophy.” ~Kevin Fox, Jr., Paste Magazine
