A true iconoclast, Grace Jones has had a career like few others: a successful model, fashion trendsetter, Bond villain, and new wave musician, all while doing it her way. Jones' life is explored in the new documentary Bloodlight And Bami:

Grace Jones and Friends Live promises to be thrilling and enlightening evening with the inimitable icon, as she discusses her life and work with some of her closest collaborators, from the worlds of music, fashion, art and film, following an exclusive preview of Sophie Fiennes’ highly anticipated new film Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami.

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami takes the viewer on an intimate and electrifying journey that moves between four cinematic layers – performance, family, artist and traveller – to explore the fascinating world of this pop cultural phenomenon. Here we see her behind the mask as a daughter, mother, sister and grandmother, alongside taking to the stage for a specially commissioned performance, with legendary hits including Pull Up to the Bumper and Slave to the Rhythm showcased in full. Larger than life, bordering on cartoon, wild, scary and androgynous – Grace Jones plays all these parts.

You can watch the trailer below.

Having premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, Grace Jones: Bloodlight And Bami will make it's theatrical debut in NYC on April 13 at Metrograph, BAM Rose Cinemas and the Film Society of Lincoln Center (ticket info TBA), followed by Los Angeles on April 20 and it will then expand around the country following that.

Grace Jones is on Gorillaz's 2017 album Humanz and played Afropunk in 2015.
