About the Event
Neptune Frost is the real Afrofuturist deal. A science fiction parable and a 21st-century musical set in Burundi. We are confronted with transgressive revolutionaries in a dazzling inventive drama. Described as a musical lesson in conscious collaboration between the developed and the developing world, the characters are surrounded by political violence, economic injustice, and cultural alienation. The challenges are formidable, but their determined spirit is what makes “Neptune Frost” moving as well as mind-bending.
Afterwards enjoy a post-screening discussion with local Bristol based artists including a poetic response to the film by Shakara, a Jamaican-born spoken word artist, poet, vocalist & creative based in Bristol. Her influences stem from dub poetry, dancehall, reggae, jazz and hip hop. She writes about her journey of empowerment, her identity and reclamation of her power and agency as a child of the diaspora.
This film screening is an Afrika Eye & Trinity Community Arts partnership featuring a post-screening discussion with local Bristol-based artists.
