Polymathic musician and artist Solange Knowles has partnered with art institutions worldwide to host free screenings of her interdisciplinary performance art film When I Get Home (2019). The 41-minute-long, remastered director’s cut will feature new scenes and a new score.
“The film is an exploration of origin, asking the question how much of ourselves do we bring with us versus leave behind in our evolution,” a press release described in March, when the 33-minute original was first released. “The artist returned to Third Ward Houston to answer this.” The dreamy film pays homage to the legacy of Black cowboys and Afrofuturism.
“When I was younger I would fear what the people called the Holy Spirit and what it would do to the men and women around me,” Solange said in a statement about the film. “I never wanted it to catch me, and was terrified on how it might transform me if it did! Much of this film is a surrendering to that fear. After a really tough health year and the loss of the body that I once knew, the film is an invitation for that same spirit to manifest through me and the work I want to continue to create.”
The extended film will be available on digital stores and streaming services on August 5. See a list of the upcoming screenings below:
