Movie Info

In an otherworldly e-waste camp made of recycled computer parts, a subversive hacking collective attempts a takeover of the authoritarian regime exploiting the region's natural resources--and its people. When an intersex runaway (Neptune, played by both Elvis Ngabo and Cheryl Isheja) and an escaped coltan miner (Matalusa, played by Kaya Free) find each other through cosmic forces, their connection sparks glitches within the greater divine circuitry. With hypnotic visuals and original songs composed by musician and co-director Saul Williams, this celestial cyber-musical offers a radically bold vision of power, exploitation, and love.

Transmitting a massive download of ideas into one film, there's no doubt that Williams and Uzeyman have creativity to spare, and they deserve all the support they can get to share it with the world.

The filmmakers have crafted a world that feels both part of the greater traditions of Afrofuturism, while also feeling uniquely its own.
