Neptune Frost, 2021, 105 minutes
Directed by Saul Williams and Anisia Uzeyman

The Parrish Art Museum and the Bridgehampton Child Care & Recreational Center (BHCCRC) continue their partnership for the third annual, two-day Black Film Festival, at the Museum. The screenings present award-winning feature films and shorts, selected by a committee representing both organizations as well as The Witness Project of Long Island and the Suffolk County Department of Health Services, Office of Minority Health.

ABOUT THE FILM

Described by The Hollywood Reporter as “The future of black film” and “pure cinematic power,” Neptune Frost, a visually wondrous sci-fi punk musical, brings unique dynamism to an Afrofuturist vision. Set in the hilltops of Burundi, a group of escaped coltan miners form an anti-colonialist computer hacker collective as they attempt a takeover of the authoritarian regime exploiting the region’s natural resources and its people. Neptune Frost is an invigorating and empowering direct download to the cerebral cortex and a call to reclaim technology for progressive political ends. Guests are encouraged to attend decked out in their best Afropunk attire, as we celebrate the film and ideas of self-expression, music, and the arts.

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR

With a BA from Morehouse College and an MFA from NYU Tisch, Saul Williams has been breaking ground since his 2001 debut album, Amethyst Rock Star, produced by Rick Rubin. After gaining global fame for his poetry and writings, Williams has performed in over 30 countries and read in over 300 universities, with invitations from the White House, the Sydney Opera House, Lincoln Center, The Louvre, The Getty Center to countless villages, townships, community centers, and prisons across the world. Williams has gone on to record with Nine Inch Nails and Allen Ginsburg, as well as countless film and television appearances
