Grace Jones

April 6 to April 12

Grace Jones was born in Jamaica, moved to upstate New York with her family at the age of 13, and on the back of her striking looks, androgynous appeal, and outsized personality became a successful model, photographer’s muse, disco recording artist, and pop film star. That, at least, is the official story, though many of Jones’ fervent fans are convinced that, strange, statuesque, and seemingly immune to aging, she is clearly an extra-dimensional being who has never set foot in Syracuse. The mysterious persona and personal life of this broke-the-mold performer are explored in Sophie Fiennes’ new backstage documentary/musical Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami, whose run at Metrograph will coincide with a selection of her cinematic outings—because this is a woman who requires a big screen.
