The film stars acclaimed poet and actor Saul Williams, who will perform a post screening DJ and poetry set.

Also starring is CX KiDTRONiK (Nine Inch Nails, Saul Williams), Beau Sia (Rachel Getting Married), and William Nadylam (Claire Denis’ White Material), as well as Anisia Uzeyman (Alain Gomis’ Tey).
