Grace Jones is know to be larger than life, wild, and a fashion icon. Grace is also iconic for being androgynous and really was one of the first super stars to blur the lines of gender. I have always found Grace Jones to be so mysterious, so the idea of a documentary sounds fascinating!
The film “Bloodlight and Bami” includes Grace’s unique performances singing iconic hits such as Slave To The Rhythm, Pull Up To The Bumper, as well as some of her more recent work. The new songs are more person and include rare footage of Grace’s family life and the stories of her traumatic childhood are revealed.
In Jamaican patois, ‘Bloodlight’ is the red light that illuminates when an artist is recording and ‘Bami’ means bread, the substance of daily life. Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami weaves together the layers of Grace Jones’ public and private life, as she moves effortlessly between different facets: she is gypsy, artist and partying hedonist, warm and funny but also a fierce and tenacious businesswoman.
