Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami
Sophie Fiennes | UK and Ireland | 2017 | Unclassified 15+
Larger than life, wild, scary and androgynous – Grace Jones plays all these parts. Yet here we discover her as lover, daughter, mother, sister and even grandmother, as she submits herself to our gaze and allows us to understand what constitutes her mask. Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami is an electrifying journey through the performance, private and public worlds of the pop cultural icon. Jones’ bold aesthetic echoes throughout the film as director Sophie Fiennes creates a powerful cinematic experience, contrasting musical sequences with intimate personal footage and reaching beyond the iconic mask.
