Grace Jones: Live with Friends

An evening with Grace Jones, performer, artist and gypsy, and enduring pop culture phenomonen

Showing Times

Larger than life; wild, fierce, androgynous - Grace Jones is all of these, yet here she also reveals Grace the daughter, mother, sister, and even grandmother. The documentary includes a specially commissioned performance, with such sublime classics as Slave To The Rhythm and Pull Up To The Bumper, and this soundtrack also links to Grace's personal life as the film takes us on a trip across Jamaica, where her family roots and the story of her traumatic childhood are uncovered.  

Following the exclusive preview of Sophie Fiennes' (A Pervert's Guide to Ideology/Cinema) tribute, Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami*, Grace is 'live on the couch' with some of her closest collaborators from the worlds of music, fashion, art and film.

* In Jamaican patois, 'Bloodlight' is the red light that illuminates when an artist is recording and 'Bami' means bread, the substance of daily life.
