MUFFTix: Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami
Let's be honest, all we really have to say about this documentary is: GRACE FUCKING JONES and that should really be enough to get y'all excited. You know, because it's GRACE FUCKING JONES.
And that's exactly what you'll be thinking as you're watching GRACE JONES: BLOODLIGHT AND BAMI, which is a combination of incredibly intimate vérite scenes of Grace Jones working, living, being and absolutely stunning performances (with stage direction by the late, great Eiko Ishioka). Director Sophie Fiennes captures Jones exactly as she is: spellbinding.
Go on an electrifying journey through the life and art of glam-pop superstar Grace Jones. A larger-than-life entertainer, screen star and androgynous diva–Jones is all these things and more. Combining intimate personal footage and dazzling musical sequences with candid backstage moments and interviews with her closest collaborators Sly & Robbie, acclaimed director Sophie Fiennes goes beyond the traditional music biography, offering a portrait as stylish and definition-defying as its subject. Join us for one of the must-see concert docs of the summer and strut your stuff to the sultry club classics "Slave to the Rhythm," "Pull Up to the Bumper," "Love is the Drug," and more.
