A cinematic rave-party somewhere in between film and visual art – and a head-on postcolonial offensive attack on the forces that still exploit the Global South. In Burundi and Rwanda, miners toil with digging out the base material for our laptops and cellphones from deep within the core of the Earth. But an army of guerilla fighters made out of androgenous hackers wages a cosmic revolution in this afro-futuristic techno-musical from Anisia Uzeyman and Saul William (who’s also behind the music). ‘Neptune Frost’ is this year’s biggest visual trip. But with a cast of only local artists, it simultaneously serves as a self-conscious black manifest: a passionate tribute to African culture with its sight set firmly towards the future.
