WATCH: ‘Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami’ Trailer

Critically acclaimed documentary Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami is set to premiere to American audiences on April 13th.

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami was directed by Sophie Fiennes, and explores the public and private worlds of the legendary artist, Grace Jones.  The film profiles Jones in full, both as larger than life performer, fashion icon and symbol; and as lover, daughter, mother, sister and grandmother in her day to day life.

Following its highly regarded debut at the 2017 Toronto Film Festival, the film will begin it’s domestic theatrical run in New York at Metrograph, BAM and the Film Society of Lincoln Center on April 13, and will quickly expand to Los Angeles on April 20, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Dallas, Houston, Philadelphia, DC, Miami and Detroit. In Canada, the film will open in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver in the weeks following the New York release.

Director Sophie Fiennes (The Pervert’s Guide To Ideology) 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.
