Grace Jones: Bloodlight And Bami
115min. Directed by Sophie Fiennes.
Starring Grace Jones, Jean-Paul Goude, Sly & Robbie
A larger-than-life entertainer, an androgynous glam-pop diva, an unpredictable media presence – Grace Jones is all these things and more. This electrifying journey through the public and private worlds of pop culture mega-icon Grace Jones contrasts musical sequences with intimate personal footage, all the while brimming with Jones’s bold aesthetic. Sophie Fiennes’s documentary goes beyond the traditional music biography, offering a portrait as stylish and unconventional as its subject. Taking us home with her to Jamaica, into the studio with long-time collaborators Sly & Robbie, and backstage at gigs around the world, the film reveals Jones as lover, daughter, mother, and businesswoman. But the stage is the fixed point to which the film returns, with eye-popping performances of several of her greatest hits. Fiennes’s treatment is every bit as genre-bending as its subject.
Presented as part of the VFF at Violet Crown series in partnership with Virginia Film Festival.
