Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami
First screened in May 2018
Director: Sophie Fiennes. Documentary tracking a year in the life of musician, model, actress, and style icon Grace Jones, including visits to her family in Jamaica, concert performances, and recording sessions for the Hurricane album.

Twitter Capsule: Disheveled at times, but better that than slick and generic. Contradictions flaunted like couture.

VOR:   She is not your negro, either. Initially comes across as a patchy version of an all-access profile but reveals a richer, more oblique agenda.
