Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami party
Join us for the opening night of GRACE JONES: BLOODLIGHT AND BAMI, from 8:00 – 10:30 pm in the O Cinema Wynwood courtyard! Join hosts Third Horizon, Flaming Classics and Sweat Records as we pay tribute to the grand dame with DJ Cronos spinning Grace classics, Grace-inspired video art projections and a tribute altar, topped off by a drag performance by Dang-Ho Yu Sickning!
In this long-awaited documentary, we discover Jones 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. The film takes us on a holiday road trip across Jamaica, where her family roots and the story of her traumatic childhood are uncovered, and of course to the stage, where her most extreme embodiments are realized and her theatrical imagination lets loose. With performances of iconic hits such as Slave To The Rhythm, Pull Up To The Bumper, as well as the more recent autobiographical tracks Williams’ Bloods and Hurricane, it’s both grand spectacle and a rare glimpse into Grace in all her glory.
Whether you’re leaving the 7pm screening or going into the 9:45 show, you’ll be able to be able to gather with your fellow Grace disciples in the courtyard to enjoy the festivities. Buy your tickets now, they’ll sell out fast!
