Dangerous Individualism

by August K. Burton

After Childish Gambino rocked the world with his "This is America" music video, he again joined forces with director and long time collaborator Hiro Murai to create a visual work of art created entirely in Cuba, Guava Island. What at first seems to be a lighthearted tale of a struggling musician turns to be a reflection and critique of a Neo-Imperialist system and how the artist operates within it.
