Donald Glover and Rihanna‘s joint cinematic venture Guava Island will premiere at Coachella tonight, not long after Glover’s alias Childish Gambino headlines the festival.

The film will be live-streamed across all of Coachella’s YouTube channels on Saturday night at 8pm, but it’s free to watch on Amazon Prime right now. The free access lasts for 18 hours from 12:01am PT today, April 13.

The film stars both Glover and Rihanna alongside Letitia Wright (Black Panther) and Nonso Anozie (Game of Thrones). Shot in Cuba last year, Guava Island tells the story of a musician determined to throw a festival for his local community. Per Vanity Fair‘s description, this is a “tropical thriller” that takes inspiration from City of Gods and Prince’s “Purple Rain.”

The film was directed by frequent Gambino collaborator Hiro Murai, who has previously leant creative vision to 2014’s “Sober”(the video of which arrived in 2015)  and 2018’s internet-breaking “This Is America“. Revisit that video below.
