Donald Glover’s Film, ‘Guava Island,’ Set To Premiere At Coachella Then Stream On Amazon
Donald Glover‘s long-awaited film, Guava Island, is set to premiere at Coachella on Thursday, and then it’ll stream on Amazon until 6 p.m. PST on Saturday.
The film directed by Glover’s frequent collaborator, Hiro Murai, is about a local musician who throws a music festival for his island community. It features Rihanna, Letitia Wright and Nonso Anozie in supporting roles.
Amazon Studios acquired the exclusive distribution rights to the film while it was still in post-production and Glover was excited by the news.
“I’m really humbled having the opportunity to present something this timely and timeless,” Glover said in a statement. “Between Rihanna and the people of Cuba, this is one of my favorite projects I’ve ever worked on.”
Murai, who worked on a number of Childish Gambino music videos including “This Is America,” reacted to the news.
“Guava Island is the end result of four incredible weeks spent in Cuba with some of the most inspiring creative talents I’ve ever met,” said Murai. “Designers, performers, musicians, and filmmakers came together from all over the world to create this crazy fever dream of a production.”
