Neptune Frost

Neptune Frost

In the hills of Burundi, a group of coltan miners rebel against the regime by taking a stand as an anti-colonial hacker collective. This wayward film is an Afrofuturistic musical that spits fire in bright colors in an explosive cocktail of themes such as gender fluidity, class struggle, spirituality, sci-fi cyberpunk and predatory capitalism.
