Sophie Fiennes’ engaging documentary explores the showbiz excesses and the Jamaican background of a star who sparkles ever more intensely.
– Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
Takes the viewer on an intimate and electrifying journey that moves between four cinematic layers – performance, family, artist and traveler – to explore the fascinating world of this pop cultural phenomenon. Here we see her behind the mask as a daughter, mother, sister and grandmother, alongside 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.
