    You may not have seen something like this before. Neptune Frost is an Afrofuturistic sci-fi musical set in a small Rwandan village built from parts of old computers. Set against the backdrop of the love story of intersexual Neptune (Elvis Ngabo and Cheryl Isheja) and mining girl Matalusa (Kaya Free), Saul Williams and Anisia Uzeyman’s film tackles anti-colonialism, anti-capitalism and current queer issues. A truly unique film with a magical setting and atmosphere, it was produced by Ezra Miller who you may know as Flash from the namesake film or also as Credence from Fantastic Beasts.
