An intimate documentary as stylish and unconventional as its subject, Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami alternates between the public and private spheres of the pop-culture mega-icon of the title. Contrasting thrilling musical sequences with intimate personal footage, director Sophie Fiennes (The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema) follows Jones to her Jamaican hometown, into the studio with longtime collaborators Sly & Robbie, and on the various stages of her sexually charged, cutting-edge live shows—featuring performances of “Slave to the Rhythm,” “Pull Up to the Bumper,” and “Love Is the Drug.” A Kino Lorber release.
The Film Society of Lincoln Center is devoted to supporting the art and elevating the craft of cinema. The only branch of the world-renowned arts complex Lincoln Center to shine a light on the everlasting yet evolving importance of the moving image, this nonprofit organization was founded in 1969 to celebrate American and international film. Via year-round programming and discussions; its annual New York Film Festival; and its publications, including Film Comment, the U.S.’s premier magazine about films and film culture, the Film Society endeavors to make the discussion and appreciation of cinema accessible to a broader audience, as well as to ensure that it will remain an essential art form for years to come.
