Kanye West is headed to the Cannes Film Festival—and it’s not for a musical performance. He’s planning to premiere his short art film Cruel Summer, inspired by the album of the same name from his record label GOOD Music, at the festival on May 23, Pitchfork reports.

The “immersive seven-screen experience” is supposed to be “a fusion of short film and art installation…unlike anything West has attempted before,” according to the press release. It seems to be related to the film project Kanye was reportedly researching in the Middle East this February, based on the Cruel Summer film poster’s imagery (see it after the cut). One thing we do know for sure: the film co-stars Aziz Ansari and Kid Cudi, and Kanye wrote, produced, and directed it. The installation will be open to the public for two days after the premiere—register for tickets here.
