Larger than life, wild, scary and androgynous – Grace Jones plays all these parts. Yet here we discover her as lover, daughter, mother, sister and even grandmother, as she submits herself to our gaze and allows us to understand what constitutes her mask. “Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami” is an electrifying journey through the performance, private and public worlds of pop cultural idol Grace Jones. Jones’ bold aesthetic echoes throughout the film as director Sophie Fiennes creates a powerful cinematic experience, contrasting musical sequences with intimate personal footage and reaching beyond the iconic cover.

Sophie Fiennes (1967) is a director, editor and producer. She studied at the Chelsea College of Art and Design. She has worked as a location manager for director Peter Greenway and later directed the feature documentaries. Fiennes' films have received international distribution and screened in festivals from Cannes official selection to Toronto and Sundance. She was awarded a NESTA fellowship in 2001, to develop her innovative approach to film, and the Arte France Cinema Award in 2008 at Rotterdam’s Cinemart.
