GRACE JONES: BLOODLIGHT AND BAMI (M)

A portrait of model, musician, icon Grace Jones. Somewhere between a concert film and a road trip, Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami takes us across the stages of Europe to her past in Jamaica. In the centre is Grace Jones, larger than life, ever funny, and in control.

Filmed and edited over twelve years, Bloodlight and Bami shows what it means to be a diva. From Grace’s early impoverished origins in Jamaica, an abusive childhood in New York, to her exacting and clear-eyed backstage demands, and finally to her astonishing, deeply theatrical and physical performances of such classics as ‘Pull Up to the Bumper,’ ‘La Vie En Rose,’ and “Slave to the Rhythm,’ Grace Jones rivetingly reveals what it means to be in control and at home with oneself.
