Cancel All Other Movies and Watch the Grace Jones Documentary ‘Bloodlight and Bami’ Instead

Bloodlight and Bami, Sophie Fiennes’ (The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema, The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology) latest documentary, follows fashion, music, art, and pop culture icon Grace Jones. For five years, Fiennes captured the public and private side of Jones, from her family home in Jamaica to her experimental performances on the stage. Dazed spoke to Fiennes about working closely with the artist:

I think Grace and I, in an unspoken way, knew what we wanted, what we wanted to pursue, like drilling into a well and finding water. I remember Anselm Kiefer (the artist and subject of her documentary Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow) saying, ‘Sophie why aren’t you talking to me’, ‘why aren’t you speaking to me anymore’, it’s like ‘shut up, i’m filming’! Grace totally understood my style. It’s a symbiotic relationship.
