Director Sophie Fiennes' documentary portrait of the powerful and pansexual glam-pop diva Grace Jones opens June 1 β€” because this is a woman who requires a big screen.

Grace Jones, the Jamaican-born singer, actress, and New Wave icon, has made a career performing versions of herself β€” but who is the person behind the persona? Filmed over the course of a decade, this stylish, unconventional documentary portrait from director Sophie Fiennes (The Pervert's Guide to Ideology) takes us inside Jones' private spaces, from her family's home in Jamaica, to the studio where she works with her longtime collaborators Sly & Robbie, and to Paris where she reunites with her image-maker and former lover, photographer and graphic designer Jean-Paul Goude.

PLUS, don't miss
"Conversations about Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami"

Following the screening, a panel of artists will consider Jones’ influence on music, performance, and popular culture by exploring the ways in which she subverts preconceived notions about race, gender, and celebrity.
