In an otherworldly e-waste camp made of recycled computer parts, a subversive hacking collective attempts a takeover of the authoritarian regime exploiting the region’s natural resources—and its people. When an intersex runaway (played by two different actors) and an escaped coltan miner find each other through cosmic forces, their connection sparks glitches within the greater divine circuitry. With hypnotic visuals and original songs composed by musician and co-director Saul Williams, this celestial cyber-musical offers a radically bold vision of power, exploitation, and love. Bursting with ideas and ambition, Neptune Frost is difficult to describe—and just as hard to resist. “Neptune Frost utilizes everything the medium of film has to offer—visually, sonically, and emotionally.” —Hollywood Reporter
