May 24, 2017

A documentary five years in the making, director Sophie Fiennes’ (’The Pervert’s Guide To Cinema’) Grace Jones documentary ‘Grace Jones: Bloodlight And Bami’ was just sold at Cannes to WestEnd Films. Currently, in post-production, the documentary explores the culture of performance art, Grace’s cult legacy, and her private and public worlds. The film utilizes both personal footage from Grace’s collection as well as staged performances to explore both sides of her persona.

“This is the first time people will see me in this way,” Jones told ScreenDaily. “They will see a very candid portrayal. It is raw. It will be like seeing me almost naked.”

‘Grace Jones : Bloodlight And Bami’ is executive produced by Francesca Von Hapsburg (‘Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present’), James Wilson (‘Under The Skin’), and Émilie Blézat.

The film’s producers also include Katie Holly (Love & Friendship), Sophie Fiennes, Shani Hinton and Beverly Jones.

While speaking to ScreenDaily, Jones announced that she’s currently in talks with a number of studios to produce a biopic based on Jones’ memoir, I’ll Never Write My Memoirs.
