Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami
This electrifying journey through the public and private worlds of pop culture mega-icon Grace Jones moves between musical sequences and intimate personal footage, all the while brimming with Jones’s bold aesthetic. A larger-than-life entertainer, an androgynous glam-pop diva, an unpredictable media presence—Jones allows director Sophie Fiennes’s documentary to go beyond the traditional music biography to offer a portrait as stylish and unconventional as its subject. (2017, dir. Sophie Fiennes, 115 min.)
A Q&A with director Sophie Fiennes follows.
