The legendary Jamaican supermodel, actress and fashion icon Grace Jones is bringing her life to the movie theatres.
In a newly released trailer for the Sophie Fiennes directed documentary, Jones’ undeniable beauty is the focal point. It is called Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami. The film, which was created out of a decade’s worth of footage, premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival next month.
In an interview with The Independent earlier this month, Fiennes opened up about working with the New Wave icon.
“This film began in a collaborative creative spirit,” she said. “Grace had fiercely controlled her public image but made the bold decision to unmask. She never sought to control my shooting process, and I didn’t second-guess the narrative of the film as I was shooting. I just gathered evidence.”
In addition, Fiennes said that the film was “a deliberate present-tense experience.”
“For me, this is the thrill-ride of verité cinema,” she said.
The documentary will chronicle Jones’ life and work with some of her closest collaborators. They span across the fields of music, art, fashion, and film.
Furthermore, the doc will include performances of her hits “Slave To the Rhythm” and “Pull Up to My Bumper.”
