Solange’s Stunning “When I Get Home” Film Gets a Director’s Cut

The Criterion Channel is hosting an exclusive stream for the film’s second anniversary.

Two years ago today, Solange reminded us that she’s one of the hardest working musicians and visionaries in the business with the release of her fourth studio album When I Get Home. It was two years ago when she was chasing the divine; two years since she portrayed a surreal world of Black cowboys and beauty; twos years when she waxed poetic to us plebeians about Florida water and how a human cannot be contained by their many layers, curves, and pains. And yes, because time is utterly wild, two years since Solange dropped the stunning accompanying film—which she wrote, performed in, and executive produced—of the same title. To celebrate the two-year anniversary, the Criterion Channel is sharing a new remastered directors’s cut of the film.

On the multidisciplinary goddess’ Blackplanet page, she’ll be sharing “digital activations” that include “special screenings of various performances and art installations that have taken place since When I Get Home’s release, and a digital quilt personally collaged by Solange featuring images and stories submitted by fans about the album’s transformative impact on their life.”
