Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami

Written by Staff Writer

“Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami” re-invents the music film as an electrifying journey through the performance, private and public worlds of pop cultural icon Grace Jones, whose bold aesthetic echoes throughout the film. Director Sophie Fiennes (The Pervert’s Guide To Ideology, The Pervert’s Guide To Cinema, Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow) creates a powerful cinematic experience, contrasting breathtaking musical sequences with intimate personal footage, ultimately reaching beyond the iconic mask. We also see Jones getting back to her Jamaican Roots as she connects with family back home and reminisces about the highs and lows of her strict religious upbringing.

Join us on Sunday 29th October at Ritzy Brixton for an exclusive chance to see behind the legend, the fashion muse, the ground breaking musician, and icon at her most open, honest and relatable.
