Afrofuturist, cyberpunk, queer musical co-produced by Lin-Manuel Miranda!

NEPTUNE FROST (virtual)

Rwanda, United States | 2021 | Saul Williams, Anisia Uzeyman

Co-produced by Lin-Manuel Miranda, this Afrofuturist, cyberpunk, queer musical is set in Burundi, where an intersex runaway, an escaped coltan miner, and a hacker collective resist an authoritarian regime. This dreamy, colorful work is overloaded with ideas (about gender, colonialism, capitalism, freedom, technology, existence, and meaning), so can be somewhat overwhelming. But its staggering inventiveness and energy keep it from crashing. Neptune Frost has been featured at the Cannes, New York, London, Toronto, and Sundance...

ALINE

Canada, France | 2020 | Valérie Lemercier

Perhaps foolhardy but undeniably unforgettable, this “fiction freely inspired by the life of Celine Dion” is the idiosyncratic work of 57-year-old French writer-director-performer Valérie Lemercier, who plays the Quebec-born superstar (here named Aline Dieu) from age 5 up and won the 2022 César Award (French Oscar) for Best Actress for doing so. Though Aline’s life mirrors Celine’s (the youngest of 14 children, she grows up to marry her manager and become one of the world’s...

MAD GOD

United States | 2021 | Phil Tippett

This stop-motion animated feature—in which an assassin ventures through a dark, dystopian world of monsters and warriors—is the longtime personal project of Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor Phil Tippett (Jurassic Park, RoboCop, Starship Troopers, et al.). Begun in 1987, work on the movie was suspended when Tippett’s Hollywood career took off and computer-generated animation seemed to render model work and hand-manipulated puppets passé. But fellow animators and KickStarter funders eventually convinced Tippett to finish his magnum...
