Description

“A sharp portrait of an iconic extraterrestrial." - Peter Bradshaw, the Guardian

“A feat of portraiture and a restoration of humanity." - Wesley Morris, the New York Times

“A must for fans and an intriguing watch for the more casual viewer." - Liz Beardsworth, Empire

Larger than life, wild, scary and androgynous - Grace Jones plays all these parts. Yet here we discover her as a lover, daughter, mother, sister and even grandmother, as she submits herself to our gaze and allows us to understand what constitutes her mask. The stage is where her most extreme embodiments are realised and her theatrical imagination lets loose: this is where the musical of her life is played out.

The film includes Grace's unique performances singing iconic hits such as Slave To The Rhythm, Pull Up To The Bumper, as well as the more recent autobiographical tracks Williams Bloods and Hurricane. Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami weaves together the layers of Grace Jones' public and private life, as she moves effortlessly between different facets: she is a gypsy, artist and partying hedonist, warm and funny but also a fierce and tenacious businesswoman. This is a Grace we have not seen before, someone who reminds us of what it is to dare to be truly alive.
