Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami

An electrifying journey through the performance, private and public worlds of pop cultural icon Grace Jones.

Time & Tickets

Larger than life, wild, scary and androgynous – Grace Jones plays all these parts. Yet here we also 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. These personal songs also link to Grace’s family life, as the film takes us on a holiday road trip across Jamaica, where her family roots and the story of her traumatic childhood are uncovered.

Sophie Fiennes, Ireland, UK, 2017, 115 min. English & French spoken, Dutch subtitles.
