The documentary “Amy” is the much anticipated exposé about Amy Winehouse directed by “Senna” award-winner Asif Kapadia. The film uses archival footage and previously unheard tracks to chronicle the British singer and songwriter’s short life and career. Footage from the documentary first screened at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. The completed film premiered at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. Kate Muir of The Times said that the film is “A cinematic song for a lost soul.” From the film’s description:
From BAFTA award-winning director Asif Kapadia (“Senna”), Amy tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse – in her own words.
Featuring extensive unseen archive footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few can.
A once-in-a-generation talent, Amy Winehouse was a musician that captured the world’s attention. A pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense – she wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyse her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most unique and adored songs of the modern era.
Her huge success, however, resulted in relentless and invasive media attention which coupled with Amy’s troubled relationships and precarious lifestyle saw her life tragically begin to unravel. Amy Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27.
Release date July 13th, 2015 after its premiere at Cannes. Return to Thumbnail View.
