  • Sophie Fiennes – Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami (2017)

    2011-2020DocumentaryIrelandMusicalSophie Fiennes

    A documentary which traces the life of the magnetic, world-conquering, Jamaican musician, model and party queen Grace Jones.

    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.
