COMING SOON: When I Get Home by Solange Knowles

30 August 2019

Visual artist and singer/ songwriter Solange Knowles presents an extended version of her interdisciplinary performance art film When I Get Home at August’s Friday Late.

An exploration of origin and spiritual expedition, When I Get Home confronts how much of us have we taken or left behind in our evolutions, and how much fear determines this? The artist returned to her home state of Texas to answer this through an expedition of a futurist rodeo uplifting the narrative of black cowboys and honouring her Houston lineage through this visual meditation.

The extended version of the film is screened exclusively from 17 July 2019 across partner institutions in USA and Europe. For full listings and free screenings see BlackPlanet and WePresent for further information.
