"You have to be a high flying bitch sometimes!" opens Grace Jones in the just-released trailer for the hotly anticipated documentary, Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami. The legendary Jamaican supermodel and singer let director Sophie Fiennes follow her around for a decade, though the trailer doesn't let on what exactly it captured, instead showing an extended montage of the icon applying her makeup: "I'm going tribal," she quips.

The documentary comes on the tails of her 2015 wildly successful autobiography, I'll Never Write My Memoirs, in which the icon recounted the halcyon days of Studio 54 and living with Jerry Hall in Paris among other glitzy stories, while still hitting a serious note, disparaging current pop musicians who copy her antics in order to attempt success. It remains to be seen what Fiennes captured in this documentary, but with Jones, it's guaranteed to be something wild.

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami will be shown at the Toronto Film Festival, running September 7 through 17th.
