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.
Neptune Frost opened at BAM and the Quad Cinema in New York and on Friday, June 10th it will open at the Laemmle Theaters in Los Angeles before expanding to select cities.
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.
