Kanye West has unveiled the title of the forthcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation, Cruel Summer, which also shares the name of the rapper’s new short art film. Set to debut in Cannes, France, during the Cannes Film Festival, on May 23, the project is a seven screen experience, MTV News reports.

Comedian Aziz Ansari, rapper Kid Cudi, Lebanese actress Razane Jammal (“Djinn”) and Palestinian actor Ali Suliman (“The Kingdom”) are all set to star in the film. West produced, wrote and directed the visuals, which are based on an Elon Rutberg screenplay — Rutberg is the associate director of West and Jay-Z‘s “N—-s in Paris” video.

The My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy creator and Kid Cudi filmed scenes for the movie in Qatar, located in the Middle East.

“Cruel Summer,” the film, will be available for the public to view two days after its world premiere on May 23. For ticket information, visit Kanye West’s website here.
