Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami w/ Q&A


Dir. Sophie Fiennes | 116 min | cert 15
 
Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami takes the viewer on an intimate and electrifying journey that moves between four cinematic layers – performance, family, artist and gypsy – 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.
 
After the screening of the film, Lee Trewhela, of Cornwall Live / The West Briton, will host a Q&A with renowned Cornwall-based musician Malcolm Joseph, who has toured the world as Grace Jones' bass player. He has also worked with Massive Attack and was a member of infamous cellulloid punk band Terry and the Idiots.
