Tomorrow 25 October 2017, the British Film Institute (BFI) Southbank and Trafalgar Releasing will host the UK premiere of the documentary film ‘Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami’.

As part of the BFI regular film and music series Sonic Cinema, director Sophie Fiennes will be joined by her subject, Grace Jones, for a live Q&Q session after the film that will be simulcast to more than 150 cinema screens across the country.

As the ultimate undefinable creative performer, Jones will discuss her life and work in the worlds of film, music, art, fashion and performance.

‘Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami’ is an independent project five years in development which will give us an intimate and electrifying portrait of the pop cultural phenomenon.

Moving between four cinematic layers – family, artist, performance and gypsy – we explore the fascinating world of this daughter, mother, sister and grandmother. Grace Jones will also take to the stage for a specially commissioned performance, showcasing the legendary hits ‘Pull Up to the Bumper’ and ‘Slave to the Rhythm’.

Described by director Fiennes as ‘excessively alive’, Jones is indeed an uncontainable force of nature; wild, scary, iconic, androgynous and a true showbusiness survivor. Grace Jones is an enigma; both a threat to the industry and one of its biggest assets.
