Ireland, United Kingdom | 2017 | Sophie Fiennes
Grace Jones, the imperious glam-pop diva, fashion model, and cultural icon, is captured in perpetual motion in this globe-trotting profile that ranges from Paris to Jones’ native Jamaica. Features electrifying concert footage. “Bloodlight “ is Jamaican patois for the red light of the recording studio; “bami” is the bread of life. “Critics’ Pick…A feat of portraiture and a restoration of humanity. It’s got the uncanny, the sublime, and, in many spots, a combination of both.” –N.Y. Times. DCP. 115 min.
ADVISORY: Euclid Ave. will be closed between E. 117th and Mayfield on 7/14, so allow extra time to get to CIA and park that day.
