An instant classic may be born this year at the Toronto International Film Festival. Nightclub legend and queer icon Grace Jones is premiering her documentary, Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami, at this year's festival, and a new international trailer is out to amplify the anticipation.
"The performer out there takes the risk," says Jones in the trailer. "It's a lonely place, but it's a fascinating lonely place." The doc will feature the "Slave to the Rhythm" singer in performances and aspects of her public appearances, as well as more secluded, personal moments from her private life.
Directed by Sophie Fiennes, Bloodlight and Bami is slated to premiere at 9:30 pm Thursday, September 7 at the Elgin Theatre as part of TIFF. According to Deadlinethe title is a Jamaican patois, "with 'bloodlight' referring to the red light that 'illuminates when an artist is recording' and 'bami' meaning bread, the substance of life."
