Grace Jones has been one of the most fascinating figures in pop culture for several decades now, and a new documentary is set to explore her life and craft.
Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami is directed by Sophie Fiennes and will have its Australian premiere at the Adelaide Film Festival in October.
Fiennes spent five years with Jones to make the documentary, which covers everything from Jones’s traumatic childhood in Jamaica, up to glitzy performances of hits such as Slave to the Rhythm, Pull Up To The Bumper, and recent autobiographical songs Williams’ Blood and Hurricane.
The official trailer for the film was released overnight.
The film is released in the UK on October 27, with a special event on October 25, Grace Jones and Friends Live. There are no details about whether that event will screen in Australia, but it’s set to feature Jones in conversation with some of her regular collaborators.
