A curated capsule of films, selected by Saul Williams and Anisia Uzeyman, the collaborative team behind Afrofuturist marvel Neptune Frost.
“We chose SWEET BEAN, for the delicate ways Naomi’s story waves personal resilience and trauma into a quest for human connection;
THE SCENT OF GREEN PAPAYA, for the sensual memory it left in all the people who saw it when it came out, it’s lessons of slowness and observation of little things + its memorable green;
THE IMAGE BOOK, he’s a master of text on moving images. His choice of lettering fonts are always impeccable and his color palettes are some of the most modern, expansive & experimental;
AQUARIUS, loved to follow a story that centers a woman’s desire and Sonia Braga as always ️️️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐;
LADY VENGEANCE, twin to Old Boy in so many ways but this time from Park Chan Wook’s idea of what a woman’s vengeance would look like & there are playful funny moments;
PIONEERS OF AFRICAN AMERICAN CINEMA. We're curious as to which films are in this collection. We'd love to discover the works from these pioneers we've never seen!"
