Directed by Saul Williams and Anisia Uzeyman | 2021

With Cheryl Isheja, Bertrand "Kaya Free" Ninteretse, Eliane Umuhire

“pure cinematic power… requires the largest screen possible”
—The Hollywood Reporter

Multi-hyphenate, multidisciplinary artist Saul Williams brings his unique dynamism to this Afrofuturist vision, a sci-fi punk musical that’s a visually wondrous amalgamation of themes, ideas, and songs that Williams has explored in his work, notably his 2016 album MartyrLoserKing. Co-directed with his partner, the Rwandan-born artist and cinematographer Anisia Uzeyman, the film takes place in the hilltops of Burundi, where a group of escaped coltan miners form an anti-colonialist computer hacker collective and attempt a takeover of the authoritarian regime. When an intersex runaway and an escaped miner find each other through cosmic forces, their connection sparks glitches within the greater divine circuitry.

Set between states of being—past and present, dream and waking life, colonized and free, male and female, memory and prescience—Neptune Frost is an invigorating direct download to the cerebral cortex and a call to reclaim technology for progressive political ends.
