Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami

Grace Jones is one of pop culture's biggest icons. She hit the 1970s and 1980s with her own distinctive, androgynous style, amazing outfits, spectacular stage shows and, not least, a unique musical expression. Her public image has always been a carefully guarded secret. This year she will be 70, but she is still active as a musician and tours the world over with her shows. In Sophie Fiennes' documentary, we take a surprisingly close look behind the fa├žade. The director has followed Jones for 10 years, and the result is a fascinating movie in a fly-on-the-wall like style. The question remains however, who really controls the camera, the director or the diva? We follow Jones from a concert scene to a church, from Paris to Jamaica. Through conversations with her family, friends and colleagues, Jones reveals a childhood characterized by abuse and tells us how it has influenced her on the way to becoming one of our all-time greatest stars.
