A wildly ambitious, radically experimental Afrofuturist musical that transcends space, time and gender from visionary poet and musician Saul Williams.

Ten years in the making, this dazzlingly original, genre-defying debut from Williams and actor and playwright Anisia Uzeyman builds on the musician’s lyrical world-building and exploration of Black resistance while following in the Afrofuturist tradition of Sun Ra’s Space Is the Place and Ngozi Onwurah’s Welcome II the Terrordome. In a past, present and future Rwanda that unfolds like a dream, a young coltan miner encounters Neptune Frost, an intersex hacker who leads us down a trans-dimensional rabbit hole of post-colonial possible realities.

A major hit at Cannes Directors’ Fortnight (where it was nominated for the Queer Palm) and across the global festival circuit, this avant-garde cyber-musical confronts ever-changing technology, racial capitalism, human labour and the slippery strictures of gender. Executive-produced by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ezra Miller, with Cheryl Isheja and Elvis Ngabo sharing screen time in the titular role, Neptune Frost is like nothing you’ve seen before: an unapologetically Black and queer astral trip that forges a new cinematic language for revolution.

“Mesmerizing … A bold, bizarre, and unflinchingly confident debut that prompts its audience to interrogate the very real human costs of the information age.” – Polygon
