The director’s cut of Solange‘s art film, When I Get Home, is now streaming on the Criterion Channel in honor of its two-year anniversary. There will be more online activations throughout the week on the singer’s BlackPlanet page to continue the celebration too.
Solange first introduced When I Get Home with her album of the same name in 2019 as an introspective exploration of what home means. Visually stunning and eclectic, the film features surreal and futuristic imagery while celebrating Black culture and paying homage to her hometown of Houston. Scenes range from Black cowboys riding through the city to glittery spaceship settings to various dance sequences, all set to songs from her celebrated LP like “Down with the Clique,” “Almeda,” “Stay Flo,” and more.
