Documentary about Amy Winehouse's life to be released in July 2015
A documentary about Amy Winehouse’s life will be released in UK cinemas this summer. Amy, which reunites the team behind the BAFTA-award winning Senna, will open on July 3 through Attitude films.
Directed by Asif Kapadia, the film will follow the talented singer from her rise to fame to the personal difficulties she suffered following her problems with addiction that led to her death in 2011. Fans can expect to see extensive unseen footage and previously unheard tracks.
A press release for the film states: “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 was one of the greatest musical talents. The singer won five Grammy Awards for her second album, Back To Black, which broke records and remains one of the UK’s biggest-selling albums of the 21st century.
