According to a press release, the newly unveiled director’s cut adds 8 minutes of runtime to the original Apple Music exclusive with new scenes and arrangements. It’s slated to screen in museums across the country, as well as a few cross-pond locales, including London and Paris. Directed by Solange with contributions from her husband, Alan Ferguson, and Terence Nance (who’s still at the helm of LeBron’s upcoming Space Jam sequel,) the film was released alongside the singer’s new album of the same name in March.

In a statement, via press release, Solange noted: “When I was younger I would fear what the people called the Holy Spirit and what it would do to the men and women around me. I never wanted it to catch me, and was terrified on how it might transform me if it did! Much of this film is a surrendering to that fear. After a really tough health year and the loss of the body that I once knew, the film is an invitation for that same spirit to manifest through me and the work I want to continue to create.”
