Cinematic Conversations When I Get Home with Jessica Green

Posted by Dallas VideoFest
WHEN I GET HOME finds multidisciplinary artist Solange Knowles’s deeply introspective vision of a spiritual expedition reckoning with the question “Where is home?” Accompanying her acclaimed 2019 album of the same name, the film taps imagery of her hometown’s (Houston, TX) culture with flights of surrealism spotlighting Black cowboys, space, futurist worlds, and ritualistic movements that characterize evolution as a recurring presence. Solange explores concepts of origin, fear, safety, and reclamation through the power of ancestral roots and the creation of one’s own kaleidoscopic universe. Presented here in Solange’s director’s cut, WHEN I GET HOME is a dazzling immersion into the imagination of an artist whose vision knows no bounds. June (2019), Solange scored and performed at Kenzo’s fashion show in Paris. It marked the final collection showcase for Kenzo by designers Humberto Leon and Carol Lim (Opening Ceremony). When I Get Home, with contributions from Alan Ferguson, Terence Nance, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Ray Tintori. Jessica Green is the Artistic Director of the Houston Cinema Arts Society.
