Neptune Frost (18) + Extended Introduction by Tatenda Shamiso

Fringe! Queer Film & Arts Fest 2022

Neptune Frost

Prepare to be transported by this transcendental, badass afrofuturist sci-fi punk musical!

Set between the hilltops of Burundi, Rwanda and parallel dimensions, rebelling miners form an anti-colonialist computer hacker collective to take back their land and freedom. When an intersex runaway and a miner find each other, their connection sparks glitches within the greater divine circuitry, erupting in a creative collision revelling in queer revolutionary poetics. This genre-defying masterwork is an invigorating and empowering direct download to the cerebral cortex.

This screening will include and extended introduction from Afrosurrealist theatre-maker, writer and musician Tatenda Shamiso.
