‘Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami’

‘Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami’

No. 6 Cinema, Portsmouth’s only independent filmhouse, screen 2017 documentary film Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami on Friday 1st December 2017, from 7:00pm.

Larger than life, wild, scary, and androgynous — Grace Jones plays all these parts. Yet here we also discover her as a lover, daughter, mother, sister, and even grandmother, as she submits herself to our gaze and allows us to understand what constitutes her mask.

Documentarian Sophie Fiennes observes the legendary Grace Jones in the more intimate moments of her life.

Preceding the main feature, No. 6 Cinema are screening the short film 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Directed by Kat Martin, and in response to Stuart Paton’s 1916 film, this is an exploration into an artificial, dystopian seabed where life has been eliminated through mankind’s doing.

Book online through the No. 6 Cinema website, or buy on the door on the night.
