An experimental film about the life of Grace Jones has been picked up by Picturehouse Entertainment to screen in the UK later this year.
Directed by documentary filmmaker Sophie Fiennes, Grace Jones — The Musical Of My Life is defined as a “doc-biopic”, combining personal documentary footage with staged musical numbers to weave a “multi-narrative journey through the private and public life” of the iconic star.
The movie actually began life way back in 2005, and is still in the works, with footage from a gig at Dublin's Olympia Theatre in next month still to be added.
“This project with Grace has been an extraordinary journey ‘following the Yellow Brick Road'," Fiennes said of the show. "We look forward to welcoming her audience to participate in our film and contributing to conjuring the Grace magic.”
