Childish Gambino, also known as Donald Glover, has released a set of behind-the-scenes videos from the shoot for his short film, Guava Island
The clips include an inside look at the locations in Cuba where the movie was filmed, a history of the music that inspired the project, and an intimate look at the Cuban dancers, actors, and musicians who were a part of the project.
“At its best (or maybe just its most accessible), art is ingenuity,” Glover explains in a statement. “I had the pleasure of experiencing this spirit of ‘making what you must with what you have’ collaborating with Cuba’s talented and abundant artists over the course of filming Guava Island. The artist’s endeavour has always been the manifesting of an idea, then forcing a society to recognize, or maybe just question, its value.”
