Whatever you think of Grace Jones, you can’t deny she’s a unique person, maybe innovative certainly in the realms of popular culture. This week premiering at Toronto Film Festival‘s Open Docs (opening movie) Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami will premiere. Today we get a glimpse into the mind of the icon with the movie’s official Trailer thanks to Trafalgar Pictures.
Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami (opening in cinemas nationwide on 27 October) 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. In Jamaican patois, ‘Bloodlight’ is the red light that illuminates when an artist is recording and ‘Bami’ means bread, the substance of daily life.
