Win Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami on DVD

Win Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami on DVD, which explores the fascinating world of a pop cultural phenomenon

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami

Sophie Fiennes’ highly anticipated Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami takes the viewer on an intimate and electrifying journey that moves between four cinematic layers – performance, family, artist and traveller – to explore the fascinating world of this pop cultural phenomenon.

In Jamaican patois, ‘Bloodlight’ is the red light that illuminates when an artist is recording, and ‘Bami’ mean bread, the substance of daily life.

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami weaves together Jones’ public and private life, as she moves effortlessly between different facets: she is gypsy, artist and partying hedonist, warm and funny but also a fierce and tenacious businesswoman.

We see Jones behind the mask as a daughter, mother, sister and grandmother, and taking to the stage for a specially commissioned performance, with legendary hits including Pull Up To The Bumper and Slave To The Rhythm showcased in full. Larger than life, bordering on cartoon, wild, scary and androgynous – Grace Jones plays all these parts.

To be in with a chance of winning one of five DVD copies, simply answer the question below:
