Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami - Live With Friends - Event Screening announced for 25th October
06 Oct 2017 :
A special screening and unique live event of the music film Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami will take place on Wednesday 25th October in a number of cinemas across Ireland ahead of the film’s release in the Irish Film Institute from Friday 27th October.

The one-night only event on the 25th will see the cultural icon Grace Jones sit down to discuss her life and work with some of her closest collaborators following an exclusive preview of the film.

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami, directed by Sophie Fiennes, aims to step inside the mind of an icon, on a journey that encompasses both the scale and spectacle of Jones' live performances and the intimacy of personal footage which delves deep into her mind.

The film features the singer performing hits such as "Slave to the Rhythm" and "Pull Up To The Bumper" and contrasts musical sequences with intimate personal footage showing both her private and public worlds.  We’re taken on a road trip across Jamaica, where her family roots and the story of her traumatic childhood are uncovered.  The film also features photographer and Jones’ frequent creative collaborator Jean-Paul Goude, as well as Jamaican duo Sly and Robbie.

Produced by Irish producer Katie Holly for Blinder Films along with Sligoville and Ameoba Film, Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami had its world premiere at the renowned Toronto International Film Festival where it was the opening film of the Docs section of the festival.

The film will be released in the IFI, Dublin from Friday 27th October.
