Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami

by Sophie Fiennes Special Screenings

“This is the first time people will see me in this way”. Grace Jones has many faces, from cold diva to queer icon and hedonistic party animal. Since the beginning of her fast-paced career as a model, dancer, singer and actress, this extraordinary artist has been careful to control every aspect of her public image. Now she lifts her mask(s) for the first time and reveals exclusive insight into her world as a daughter, mother, sister and grandmother. We travel with her to the home of her family in Jamaica, where memories of her difficult childhood resurface, accompany her to the recording studio and experience electrifying stage appearances. Director Sophie Fiennes intertwines these different realms into an unconventional creative flow that does justice to the new wave icon that is Grace Jones.
