Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami Trailer (2018)
Trailer for the documentary Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami.
A larger-than-life entertainer, an androgynous glam-pop diva, an unpredictable media presence––Grace Jones is all these things and more. Sophie Fiennes’s documentary goes beyond the traditional music biography, offering a portrait as stylish and unconventional as its subject. Taking us home to Jamaica,the studio with long-time collaborators Sly & Robbie, and behind-the-scenes at shows all 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 "Slave to the Rhythm," “Pull Up to the Bumper,” "Love is the Drug," and more. Jones herself has said watching the film “will be like seeing me almost naked” and, indeed, Fiennes’s treatment is every bit as genre-bendingas its subject, untamed by neither age nor life itself.
