Documentary 2017 115 mins

Director: Sophie Fiennes



Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami takes the viewer on an intimate and electrifying journey that moves between four cinematic layers – performance, family, artist and gypsy – to explore the fascinating world of this pop cultural phenomenon. Here we see her behind the mask as a daughter, mother, sister and grandmother emerge, alongside taking to the stage for a specially commissioned performance, showcasing the legendary hits Pull Up to the Bumper and Slave to the Rhythm.

Larger than life – bordering on the cartoon-like – wild, scary and androgynous, Grace Jones plays all these parts to perfection. But this profile by acclaimed director Sophie Fiennes (The Pervert's Guide to Cinema, Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow) shows us the fascinating, real woman behind the cultivated persona.
