Neptune Frost screening – 24.11, 7 PM
We would like to invite you to an open film screening carried out by Bulvary, Krupa Gallery and Dobre Kino • film screenings, which is also an event accompanying the SE99ZY exhibition.
We have chosen “Neptune Frost”: a science-fiction musical, in which we find themes taken up in the works of Iza Opiełka and Miłosz Flis, full of references to corporeality, pop culture and sci-fi cinema. We encourage you to visit the exhibition at Krupa Gallery, and then next door for the evening screening of “Neptune Frost”.
“Neptune Frost” by Anisia Uzeyman, Saul Williams, Rwanda, USA, 2021 (1 hour 45 minutes): The Afrofuturist fantasy and thus thrilling sci-fi punk musical is set in the peaks of Burundi, where a group of escaped coltan miners form an anti-colonialist hacker collective. From their camp on an unearthly e-waste dump, they attempt to take on an authoritarian regime exploiting the region’s natural resources and its people. Neptune Frost is an invigorating and imaginative work, an anti-capitalist allegory and a call to reclaim technology for progressive political purposes. The story unfolds between multiple states of being – past and present, dream and waking, colonized and free.
The screening is being held as part of the Cinema in Bulvar series.
