Visionary directors Anisia Uzeyman and Saul Williams' join forces with producer Lin-Manuel Miranda with their critically acclaimed Afrofuturist, cyberpunk musical.
An expansive piece of art, with eye-popping color and a beautiful, dynamic cast of young Black performers.
Equal parts Afrofuturist fever dream and queer cyberpunk musical, Neptune Frost takes place in the hilltops of Burundi, where a collective of computer hackers have relocated after escaping from a nearby coltan mine. Visionary filmmakers Saul Williams and Anisia Uzeyman have crafted an anti-colonialist fable that centers on Matalusa, an escaped miner, and Neptune, an intersex hacker on the run.
Neptune Frost is a dazzling visual and sonic explosion – featuring stunning cinematography, music, costumes, and production design – that poetically melts away borders, language, genders, and genres.
