The Afro-Futurist Sci-Fi musical Neptune Frost opened on Friday, June 3rd in New York City, and Dedza Films and Kino Lorber have announced Unanimous Goldmine: Original Soundtrack to Neptune Frost. The official soundtrack of Saul Williams and Anisia Uzeyman’s musical will feature lead single “Binary Stars” and arrive this summer, along with a limited edition vinyl pre-order.
Multidisciplinary artist Saul Williams brings themes, ideas, and songs that Williams has explored in his previous work to Neptune Frost, notably his 2016 album MartyrLoserKing. Co-directed with the Rwandan-born artist and cinematographer Anisia Uzeyman, the film takes place in the hilltops of Burundi, where a group of escaped coltan miners form an anti-colonialist computer hacker collective.
The film is described as:
Set between states of being – past and present, dream and waking life, colonized and free, male and female, memory and prescience – Neptune Frost is an invigorating and empowering direct download to the cerebral cortex and a call to reclaim technology for progressive political ends.
