The first teaser trailer for ‘Amy’, a documentary by ‘Senna”s Asif Kapadia, which tells the story of the tragic singer Amy Winehouse’s life in her own words, is released.
(ALTITUDE FILM DISTRIBUTION) – The first glimpse of a documentary about the life of late British singer Amy Winehouse was unveiled on Thursday (April 2), with a trailer showing the six-time Grammy-Award winner hauntingly talking about fame.
“AMY”, which is due for release on July 3, aims to tell the story of the hugely successful musician, who died from alcohol poisoning nearly four years ago at her London home at the age of 27.
Using footage of a young Winehouse singing and smiling to the camera, the trailer shows her talking about her career. A haunting version of her “Back to Black” single can be heard in the background.
“I never thought … I would end up being a singer. I just thought I’m lucky that it is something I can always do if I want to,” Winehouse says.
“I don’t think I’m going to be at all famous, I don’t think I could handle it. I would probably go mad,” she says in another clip.
The film, made by director Asif Kapadia who won a BAFTA for his documentary “Senna” on the late Formula One racing driver Ayrton Senna, will feature previously unseen footage as well as unheard tracks.
Winehouse was seen as one of the most talented singers of her generation, recording hits such as “Valerie”, “You Know I’m No Good” and “Rehab”.
Known for her beehive hairstyle, she struggled with drinking and drug problems throughout much of her career.
